The Australian Indigenous Governance Institute (AIGI)

AIGI is an independent, Indigenous-led centre for governance knowledge and excellence. We connect Indigenous Australians to world-class governance practice, resources and professional development to meet their self-determined governance needs.

 

We envision a future Australia where Indigenous peoples, communities and nations can pursue and exercise their right to self-determination and economic development through strong self-governance.

 

We work alongside Indigenous peoples in their efforts to determine and strengthen their own sustainable systems of self-governance.

 

Our People. Our Governance. Our Way.

As a not-for profit Indigenous-led organisation, we understand the challenges organisations face to meet their governance obligations. We also know that impact is increased when organisations focus on creating solutions that are culturally legitimate, evolving, customised and accountable.

 

We’re here to help you with our tailored professional development. Our friendly team works closely with you to design and run training that meets your specific needs, environment and resources.
