What does January 26 mean to WMQ staff?
Wesley Mission Queensland is committed to promoting social justice and addressing inequality through its services and organisational culture. As a diverse and multicultural workplace, we value inclusivity and respect for all members of the community.
To demonstrate allyship with First Nations people and live out its values, WMQ has given employees the choice to work on the Australia Day public holiday as we believe our wonderful country should be celebrated on a day that unifies us all.
In the video below we ask some of our team, both First and Second Nations, what 26 January means to them.
