Voices of Our Success: Sharing the Stories and Analysis from the 2014 Indigenous Governance Awards

Publication

The Awards celebrate success in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander incorporated organisations and non-incorporated organisations and projects nation-wide.

In 2014, 113 stellar Indigenous-led organisations and projects applied providing a fantastic opportunity to gain insight into current innovation, practice and understanding of Indigenous governance.

The 2014 applicants confirm what we already know: that strong governance is a change enabler. What additionally stands out about the applicants is that they are inherently ‘for purpose’. These organisations strongly prioritise mutual accountability and innovatively craft governance arrangements to ensure that projects, services, and programs serve the interests of those they impact.

An Executive Overview of key findings is available here: Voices of Our Success Executive Overview.
