Indigenous employment

Southern Cross University embraces the cultural diversity that exists within Australia. This is reflected by our commitment to supporting the advancement of Indigenous employees and continuing to create quality work opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Indigenous employment strategy

SCU has developed an Indigenous employment strategy [pdf] to assist in achieving a workforce reflective of the Australian population. The University is currently implementing a number of Indigenous employment initiatives, based on the three objectives of the current strategy:

  1. Increase the number of Indigenous Australian employees through enhanced recruitment and retention practices;
  2. Increase the participation of Indigenous Australian employees in training and development programs; and
  3. Develop and strengthen Indigenous cultural competency in non-Indigenous Australian employees

Each of the three objectives of the Indigenous employment strategy [pdf] contains a list of initiatives for implementation and all employees are encouraged to familiarise themselves with the strategy.
