Hosted by Strong Women Talking the Open Thinking Conference draws on 60,000 years of knowledge and Australia's shared history to help guide mainstream services to work in more culturally appropriate and respectful ways. The Open Thinking Conference framework will be based on Our Watch's key drivers from the Changing The Picture resource. Breaking the cycle of violence against Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women and children by addressing: Addressing racisms role in domestic & family violence  Intersectionality Intergenerational trauma Practicing trauma informed care  Cultural capability building  Over a full day line up you will hear from profound and electrifying First Nations Leaders. They will be speaking with first hand experience, knowledge and insight into living and working with our First Nations women, men and families on the ground every day.
