Building Workplace Capability for Indigenous Australia

DCA’s Building Workplace Capability for Indigenous Australia network is sponsored by National Australia Bank and is run exclusively for DCA members. It is designed to profile leading practice in attraction, retention and promotion of Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander talent; improve understanding of Indigenous cultures and issues; build organisational capability in this area, and involve both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to share information and build relationships.
