Indigenous Participation Plan Services
What is an Indigenous Participation Plan?
A IPP is strategic document that adds value to your organisation while supporting equal opportunities for all Australians. It’s a framework which represents a willingness to engage, liaise and work alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and details where and how the cultural values of Indigenous Australia fit into the decisions made by your organisation.
Whether it’s building partnerships with local Aboriginal communities, expanding your indigenous workforce, consulting traditional owners on infrastructure projects or coordinating joint ventures with indigenous-owned businesses, an IPP will support and guide your organisation’s cultural inclusivity efforts.
Why do I need an IPP?
An IPP brings into focus the many opportunities that exist for organisations who engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. It reminds decision makers of the vast knowledge, skills and benefits that exist amongst this group, resulting in quicker decision making and reducing the tendering process for larger projects.
Indigenous Participation Plans also play a major role in Reconciliation, helping to meet targets of the Australian Government’s Closing the Gap initiative. You’ll not only provide equal opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, but will also enhance your reputation as a good corporate citizen
