There is a massive over-representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experiencing homelessness and a major lack of affordable housing. The Australian Government and communities have a very important role to play in ending homelessness.

The 2nd National Indigenous Housing & Homelessness Forum will examine how to improve housing issues for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The Forum will also examine the lack of cultural understanding in the housing sector and how collaboration is crucial in order to have better outcomes.

  • Develop a more culturally inclusive housing model   
  • Support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people experiencing homelessness
  • Provide mentoring and pathways in housing services

Across Australia, Indigenous business is booming. Recent changes to federal Indigenous Procurement Policy (IPP) have created multi-million dollar opportunities for Indigenous businesses. In addition, there is a growing demand for Indigenous workers as procurement policy requires major contracts to meet Indigenous employment quotas. There has never been a more exciting time for Indigenous businesses, and the opportunities are larger than ever.

Despite the successes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses, Indigenous communities still face staggering unemployment rates. By investing in training, business development and grassroots empowerment, both Indigenous and mainstream businesses can ensure that they are utilising the wisdom and culture of their local communities.

The 7th National Indigenous Economic Development Forum will address upcoming procurement opportunities for Indigenous people in both business and employment. Let’s work together to grow business, encourage entrepreneurship and facilitate sustainable employment for Indigenous communities.

By attending this forum, you will learn how to:

  • Empower business growth and employment by learning how to secure Indigenous procurement opportunities.
  • Engage with cross-sector businesses to gain knowledge and mentorship, and pursue ethical Joint Ventures while reducing the risk of such projects.
  • Discover ways to gain a sustainable Indigenous workforce through culturally-sensitive recruitment processes and workplaces.
  • Overcome various social barriers to create sustainable employment and strong Indigenous communities.
  • Achieve government and private funding by studying case studies and learning from funding body representatives.
  • Utilise government policy to your best advantage by hearing from federal and state representatives.

This practical forum is developed for senior professionals involved in: 

  • Resource management and mining
  • Culturally-sensitive aged care and health services
  • Infrastructure, planning and development
  • Entrepreneurship and business development
  • Employment, recruitment and community engagement
  • Land, water and fire management and biosecurity
  • Family, social and community development services
