Indigenous Mentoring Program

Welcome to the Australian Public Service Commission’s Indigenous Mentoring Program.

The Indigenous Mentoring Program is to develop Indigenous APS and Commonwealth employees. The success of the mentoring experience depends on the partners sharing common goals and expectations, having a commitment to the mentoring partnership, and giving and receiving trust and respect.

Mentoring offers a great opportunity to develop skills, share knowledge, encourage the formation of networks, and work together towards future goals. Your involvement in this initiative will enhance your understanding of your own professional and cultural identity, as well as the cultural differences of others. Whether you're a Mentor or Mentee, this is your chance to inspire, empower and challenge others.

Nominations for the program have now closed. Any inquires can be directed to indigenous@apsc.gov.au.
