Reconciliation Australia has just launched the prestigious Indigenous Governance Awards and is now seeking applications from outstanding organisations. As part of your delivery of services to the Indigenous community we are asking if you would promote these fantastic awards throughout your extensive networks. You’re also probably aware of a range of potential contenders.
Entering the awards:
· Two categories – Category A is for incorporated organisations & Category B is for unincorporated, groups, projects or initiatives. This is the first year we’re looking for examples of outstanding Indigenous governance in projects, initiatives or groups that aren’t incorporated.
· Application forms and application guidelines are on our website www.reconciliation.org.au/iga
Nominations: This year we’re accepting nominations and referrals so if you know of a great organisation or project that deserves to be in the running, you can send us their details firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll encourage them to apply and offer assistance with the application process.
Do you know an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander organisation or project that is really kicking goals?

“I know Indigenous people can succeed because I’ve seen it. We are capable, we can lead, and we can make changes for the better. Indigenous success is all around us. Let’s learn from what works and let’s breed that success.’” Professor Mick Dodson, Chair, Indigenous Governance Awards
