Aboriginal Inclusion Action Plan

The department's Aboriginal Inclusion Action Plan 2018-20 continues our commitment to working in partnership with Aboriginal Victorians to support inclusive economic participation, progress reconciliation and contribute to state and national efforts to 'Close the Gap'.

We will do this by strengthening understanding and recognition of Aboriginal culture and perspectives across all areas of our operations, creating workplace opportunities, and increasing Aboriginal participation in policy, project and program development.

The plan has five key themes:

  1. Recognition, respect, promotion and celebration of Aboriginal culture and heritage
  2. Employment
  3. Genuine engagement, partnership and participation
  4. Economic participation
  5. Place-based projects.

Collected under each theme is a series of actions, indicators and the department groups responsible for delivering on the commitment.

The refreshed plan has an increased focus on the employment of Aboriginal people. We encourage Aboriginal candidates to visit our careers page for current opportunities and information about working for the department.

Our Diversity and Inclusion Team also encourages expressions of interest from Aboriginal people in working for the department. Please email diversity@ecodev.vic.gov.au
