Building The Aboriginal Led Knowledge Base
All research conducted with Waminda will align with our strategic directions and be accountable, culturally safe and relevant to the communities we work alongside. We are committed to ensuring any research we commission and/or partner with others to do, will contribute towards improving the quality of life of Aboriginal peoples and to a greater understanding and respect for First Nations culture and ways of being, knowing and doing.
We are also committed to building our research capacity to lead and actively participate in the research we are involved in, and to employing and training Aboriginal researchers.
Joint Research With Waminda
If you are seeking to undertake research with Waminda , you will need to submit an Expression Of Interest form to our research committee at
Waminda’s Research Committee meets on the last Wednesday every month to discuss and assess Research proposals from external organisations seeking our active participation in a research initiative.
All studies that seek Waminda’s participation regardless of target sample and type of project (ie. research masters, PhD or research projects) are required to follow this process. The Research Committee will assess the proposal based on strategic priorities; community benefit and our capacity to participate at the time. We aim to have a response as to our decision to participate within 4-5 weeks of receipt of the written request.
