We acknowledge that the use of language such as ‘mum’ or ‘dad’ does not capture the full breadth of parental and care-giver roles in all families. With our established programs, we need to carefully consider any changes to the existing content, as these are the versions that have been proven effective in research trials. However, we are committed to seeing that the inclusivity of our materials evolves and improves with input from our consumers.
We are engaged in ongoing reflection and planning about our equality and inclusivity practices within PIRI, especially as new resources and new versions of existing programs are developed. We note that this is a process that will be continuous, and we always welcome feedback from those individuals, professionals, and community organisations, who engage in our research and use our supports. This will help us to better include and support all families and children into the future.
We acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of the land and pay our respects to Elders past, present and emerging. We celebrate, value and include people of all backgrounds, genders, sexualities, cultures, bodies and abilities.
