Australian society values diversity and recognises the importance of honouring and valuing cultural differences. A good member of any community likewise recognises, respects, and values the impact of cultural diversity within society. By recognising the living history and culture of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples you are demonstrating these important personal attributes. The respect, recognition and values are essential characteristics for academic success as well as a positive foundation in any workplace. This badge recognises the beginning of a growth process for the badge holder in development of curiosity and compassion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's culture.
