Overview

Despite ongoing initiatives to boost Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment rates, the employment gap between Australia’s Indigenous population and mainstream population is widening.

Many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people leave school without the adequate skillset or certificates to enter the workforce. And for those with skillsets and certificates, the challenges of working, particularly in mainstream organisations, remain many.

The National Indigenous Employment Forum will focus on providing pathways to and engaging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people in employment. Delegates will also gain tools on how to effectively attract, recruit and retain Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees, create mentoring programs, provide pathways to leadership roles and create a culturally inclusive and acknowledging workplace.

Attend and learn how to:

    Support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people into employment

    Create sustainable pathways into employment

    Attract, recruit and retain Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees

    Develop an inclusive work environment that celebrates Indigenous cultures
