The Indigenous Champions Network is an advocacy body who are committed to leading and driving initiatives aimed at increasing the workplace experience for all Australian Public Service (APS) Indigenous Australians. Champions are senior representatives from various Australian Government agencies. The role of the network includes promoting and facilitating the sharing of good practice and collaboration between agencies as well as exploring new ideas that lead to better employment outcomes for Indigenous employees. The network meets quarterly and is supported by a secretariat through Services Australia.
Indigenous Senior Executive (SES) Network
The Indigenous SES Network was established to contribute to progressing Indigenous employment and retention initiatives. The Indigenous SES Network is committed to driving meaningful change and providing guidance to Secretaries on issues affecting Indigenous Australians to provide a stewardship role that contributes to greater representation, retention and progression for Indigenous Australians in the Australian Public Service.
Indigenous Liaison Officer (ILO) Network
Indigenous Liaison Officers are Human Resource Practitioners who manage a number of projects related to recruitment and retention of Indigenous employees in the Australian Public Service. They provide advice to managers on people management challenges and often also provide advice to Indigenous employees on employment related matters. ILO’s provide a link to assist the design and implementation of effective engagement strategies to attract, recruit, retain and advance Indigenous employees. The ILO network is focused on providing a culturally supportive environment for Indigenous Liaison Officers to share ideas, resources, troubleshoot retention issues and provide support to members.
