Strengthening Indigenous leadership

The Government has identified Indigenous leadership as one of the seven building blocks required to Close the Gap in Indigenous life outcomes.

As a result there is an imperative on all organisations to work towards strengthening Indigenous leadership. The question is: How do we do this most effectively?

The Indigenous Leadership Conference has been designed to answer this question. It will do so through a series of presentations from some of Australia's most inspiring Indigenous leaders as well as from those organisations making significant progress in this space.

Presentations will explore some of the most critical issues around Indigenous leadership, including;

Empowering youths to become the leaders of tomorrow
Ensuring effective leadership and good governance in Indigenous organisations
Increasing the representation of Indigenous people at the senior levels of organisations
Building partnerships to ensure Indigenous people can take leadership on the issues that affect them.
If you're working in a Government department or agency, a business or corporation, a not-for-profit or Indigenous organisation and are concerned with Closing the Gap then this conference is a must for you.

You will learn:

How to keep young people engaged in education and empower them to succeed
How to develop programs that will build leadership at the community level
How to ensure strong leadership and good governance in Indigenous/community controlled organisations
How to build Indigenous leadership in the workplace
