In November 2018 The Australian Indigenous Governance Institute (AIGI) held an Indigenous Youth in Governance Masterclass in partnership with The Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) and Reconciliation Australia (RA).

This Masterclass connected, educated and promoted Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people aged 18 to 35 who are or hope to be active in the business of governance locally, regionally and nationally. This event helped build the knowledge and skills of young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the field of governance.

Masterclass Schedule

This Masterclass will combine guest speakers, presentations and small group activities to form an interactive workshop. It will cover critical areas in Indigenous Governance including:

Foundations of governance
Culture in governance
Agitating for change
Negotiation skills
