Indigenous policy reform and leadership and extensive experience in the
training and employment sector will provide an important perspective and an
Indigenous voice on the Council.
The Council is

strategic direction and establishing goals for management. These three
appointments will ensure the Council has an enhanced range of skills and
knowledge to assist its work with senior management to develop, execute,
monitor and adjust appropriate strategies.
