Indigenous APS Employees forums
The APSC will be running the 2014 series of Indigenous employee forums across Australia from the very end of March to early May.
These forums will be a follow on from the 2013 forums that brought APS Indigenous employees together to explore issues affecting Indigenous employees in the workplace and also gave the participants the opportunity and time to discuss the establishment of local Indigenous Employee Networks. The 2014 forums will again be challenging Indigenous employees to contribute ideas and strategies to reduce high separation rates and to discuss career progression strategies.
These forums proved to be successful last year and we are hoping that we will have even more participation this year.
As these networks are a great opportunity for Indigenous employees to meet face to face and we would appreciate your support and encourage supervisors and line managers to let the Indigenous staff attend in their local areas.
