The Commonwealth Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Strategy aims to build the representation of Indigenous employees in the Commonwealth public sector. The Strategy supports the Government's target of three per cent Indigenous representation by 2018. The Strategy focuses on four key action areas:

  1. Expand the range of Indigenous employment opportunities.
  2. Invest in developing the capability of Indigenous employees.
  3. Increase the representation of Indigenous employees in senior roles.
  4. Improve the awareness of Indigenous culture in the workplace.

The Implementation Guide to the Strategy is a directory of resources, programs and other measures available across the Commonwealth public sector. It provides opportunities for agencies to access or adapt existing initiatives to increase their Indigenous representation.

This is a dynamic guide that will be updated regularly. Agencies are strongly encouraged to contribute initiatives to the guide. Please send information or enquiries to diversity@apsc.gov.au.
