This National Reconciliation Week (27 May - 3 June 2013), the Northern Indigenous Employment (NIE) working group, which WISE Employment is a founding member of, invites business, government, community and service stakeholders to share in a productive conversation about the benefits of employing Indigenous Australians.
You're invited to join them at a luncheon on Thursday 30 May in Melbourne and hear from business leaders who have been recognised for developing successful Indigenous employment strategies. Learn how to increase Aboriginal participation and employment in your workplace by discussing:
• Aboriginal employment expectations and recruitment procedures
• How to find the right candidates, community engagement and Aboriginal Employment Officers
• Successful Indigenous recruitment and retention strategies – the long term picture
Engage with your local Aboriginal community and enjoy delicious Indigenous cultural food prepared by community elder, Uncle Phil Ahwang.
Where: Victoria Aboriginal Community Services Association (VACSAL), 496 High St, Northcote, Melbourne (entrance at rear of building)
Bookings: Contact Tanya Douglas on (03) 9279 2256 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 24th May. Please specify dietary requirements.
The NIE working group luncheon is an initiative of the NIE working group, supported by the Department of Education, Employment and Work Relations (DEEWR), Department of Transport, Planning & Local Infrastructure and the City of Darebin.
