A list of possible targets and indicators were identified at the second and final Closing the Gap Refresh technical workshop held recently in Canberra. The workshop brought together key stakeholders, subject matter and data experts to help identify possible targets and indicators that most effectively drive greater opportunities and outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Building on the discussions from the first workshop, where participants worked on the future state and vision for the priority areas, including employment, education, health, justice, healing and trauma and entrepreneurship, the second workshop had the difficult task of shaping the vision into measureable targets.
Outcomes from the first technical workshop were further considered and analysed, with a strong focus on data, including how targets are measured and reported against. This work is vital in shaping the revised Closing the Gap agenda.
