Chief Executive Officer Tjillari Justice Aboriginal Corporation

Conference Day One: Thursday, 25th November 2021

Thursday, November 25th, 2021

2:00 PM Supporting Indigenous Australian Women Through The Complexities of The Justice System and Guiding Them Through Needs-Based Rehabilitative Programs.

Not only are Indigenous Australia’s being incarcerated at higher rates than non- Indigenous Australians, but women are being incarcerated at higher rates than men and the same can be said for Indigenous women, with this group of individuals being 21 times more likely to be incarcerated. The complexities of Australia’s courts and justice system can be daunting for anyone; however, for a marginalized community of people, it can seem almost impossible to understand. In this presentation, Deborah Evans will discuss her work with indigenous Australian women detainees and the programs she has been involved in to help them.

Conference Day Two: Friday, 26th November 2021

Friday, November 26th, 2021

4:00 PM Advisory Board Panel Discussion: Engaging Discussion About The Future of Correctional Facility Standards and Rehabilitative Methods, and Understanding The Next Step Ensure Progress.

Looking back over what has been discussed throughout the last two days, our advisory board members will offer their insights into the direction Australia’s Justice and Corrections Industry is heading. Our Advisory members will discuss how they are all going to take new knowledge and insights they’ve acquired from collaborating with each other, back to their own facilities and organisations, in hopes to better the industry.
