Thank you and good luck to all

Reconciliation Australia would like to say thank you to all the organisations, initiatives and projects who took the time to apply for the 2016 Indigenous Governance Awards. This year we received a record number of applications, highlighting the ongoing and amazing work that is being done right around the nation.

Effective governance is the key to success for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander enterprises. This is why the Indigenous Governance Awards were created—to shine a light on the most well-run Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and projects, and to encourage others to follow their example of success.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and projects are creating governance models that are effective and meaningful in two worlds, and they are showing two-way governance and self-determination in action.

Reconciliation Australia and BHP Billiton are proud to run the Indigenous Governance Awards, and to play a part in recognising and celebrating the diverse and effective Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and projects around Australia.

We’re excited to recognise all the deadly organisations, projects and groups across the nation, and we look forward to getting in touch with our eight finalists towards the end of July.
