Indigenous Governance

Indigenous Governance

Effective governance of Indigenous corporations and organisations across Australia requires an appreciation of the the social dynamics and diversity of Indigenous people and communities across urban, rural and remote communities.

It requires an ability of organisations and governments to understand and value the cultural knowledge, skills, culture practices and history of Indigenous people in Australia.

The Indigenous sector represents the interests and aspirations of Indigenous people to manage resources, programs and services to support and sustain economic development outcomes and initiatives. This sector employs a large number of Indigenous and non-Indigenous people who work in specialist roles within the community and on the front line.

Cintex recognises the need to support leaders in Indigenous communities to improve the effectiveness and performance of Indigenous organisations. Cintex provides tailored consulting services and training programs to build governance skills and knowledge for directors, senior executives and managers of Indigenous organisations.
