The Menzies Indigenous Capacity Building Unit would like to introduce our new Larrakia name “Biyamarr ma” aims to create a capable and sustainable Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce through employment, training and professional development opportunities in a culturally appropriate environment.

To help celebrate the International Year of Indigenous Languages, our new Larrakia name “Biyamarr ma” meaning Pandanus, which was honorably given to us by Larrakia Man Patj Patj, Janama, Robert Mills..

With this in mind, the three focus areas for “Biyamarr ma” are:

  1. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Strategy
    The development of the 2016-2026 Strategy is in progress.
  2. Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) - A revised RAP is in progress.
  3. Trainee and cadetship program.
