Indigenous Governance Program

Supporting governance, leadership and self-determination in First Nations-led organisations and communities.

The Indigenous Governance Network is an online community for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations to learn, share and connect around First Nations governance.

The Indigenous Governance Awards celebrate and promote success from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and organisations around Australia.

The Corporate Partnerships Program develops two-way, mutually beneficial relationships between First Nations organisations and Reconciliation Action Plan partners.

The Indigenous Governance Program supports governance, leadership and self-determination in First Nations-led organisations and communities.

With an online network, awards program and partnership opportunities, the Indigenous Governance Program shares stories of success and excellence in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations.

Resources and toolkits are available to support First Nations leaders to create and maintain strong governance practices, based in culture.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have tried and tested their own models of governance for at least the past 60,000 years – and we know what works.
