"These leaders will contribute to a wide range of AGSM leadership initiatives, ensuring Indigenous expertise and experience is integrated across all programs," said Professor Nick Wailes, Director AGSM and Deputy Dean UNSW Business School. 

"We also believe that many Indigenous practices can contribute to making Western workplaces better places to work and we are keen to collaborate with our new faculty so that these practices become part of the way Australian organisations do business," he said.

"They will build on our current Indigenous Leadership programs and introduce new ones designed specifically to equip more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander managers to accelerate their careers."

AGSM is committed to seeing Indigenous Australians thrive in the community and in business. Along with its existing Indigenous Capability Development Programs, AGSM is designing a new program for the Australian Public Service to increase their number of senior Indigenous leaders.
