“I’ve got a place”: Indigenous participation strategies - practice insights


Within the construction industry, as elsewhere, organisations develop strategic plans for increasing the participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples – but what makes for a good plan?

Eighteen people with significant Indigenous economic participation or social procurement experience from industry, government and academia were consulted for this report, offering practice insights into these strategies. Contributors offered their perceptions of an Indigenous Participation Plan (IPP) which could be considered illustrative of the sorts of plans that may be used by Tier 1 construction companies on large development projects within Australia. They also shared with us their experience of what they have seen work well, and what they know are factors that undermine the success of Indigenous participation.
