NAIDOC Week, during which Australia celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islander, will begin on 3 July. One of the ways CCF NSW recommends developing positive engagement with your Aboriginal employees and business partners is to recognize important days and celebrations such as NAIDOC Week and the Journey of Healing Day, also known as National Sorry Day.
