Members Community

Lowitja Institute Members Community

As Australia's only national Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community controlled health research organisation, we place Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders knowledge and cultural understanding at the heart of the research process and outcomes. We are creating a vibrant and engaged members community and welcome applications from individuals and organisations to join us as we continue to work towards realising Dr Lowitja O’Donoghue’s vision. We are seeking both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander, and non-Indigenous applicants who are aligned with our vision and values to connect with us and join this diverse network.

Building on the strength and agency of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, we offer connection, support and development opportunities to enhance the capability of our health research workforce.

A nation is only as strong as the health of its people and we all have a role to play. However, better outcomes can only be achieved when Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a strong and leading voice in research. The contribution of our Members Community is integral to creating research outcomes that centralise and amplify the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

We are on a journey, one that is informed by our long history of caring for our country, for our cultures and our peoples. 

Will you come on this journey with us?

For more information about membership benefits and options, or to join us today, please see the options below and contact the support team at members@lowitja.org.au if you have any questions. There are two application forms available, which take around 10 minutes to complete.
