The National Conference on Indigenous Health Workforce Leadership will examine critical success factors for enabling Indigenous leadership across the health system.
It will provide a critical intervention to shift the dominant narrative within the Indigenous health sector from one of ‘aspiration’ and ‘capacity building’ to ‘transformation’.
The conference takes a broader, multidisciplinary, strengths-based approach to consider what enables a group of Indigenous health professionals to rise into leadership positions in such a broad range of domains of the health system.
The National Conference will bring together Indigenous health leaders from across the health system throughout Australia including clinical practice, research, administrative and advocacy.
The National Conference will reflect on the transformative presence of a rapidly growing Indigenous health workforce over the past few decades.
It will illuminate not only the diverse and rich experiences of Indigenous health leaders, but reveal new and emerging workforce opportunities.
By fostering dialogues that privilege Indigenous knowledge, insights and experience, the conference will advance understandings of Indigenous health workforce leadership and excellence beyond the frontline.
