Indigenous Governance Program

Recognising governance excellence of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations

For the safety of finalists and their communities, the 2021 Indigenous Governance Awards have been postponed until May 2022, with judging to start in February 2022.


This will ensure that the judging panel has appropriate time and access to visit and thoroughly evaluate each finalist.

Updates and information on the finalists and judging process soon to come.

The Indigenous Governance Online Platform provides networking and further information about the program including the Corporate Partnership Program , the Indigenous Governance Network and the Indigenous Governance Awards.

“Studies around the world and in Australia show that good governance is the key to building and sustaining healthy, prosperous communities, and we want to recognise, applaud and share those achievements.”
