THE INQUIRY into pathways and participation opportunities for Indigenous Australians in employment and business is holding further public hearings by conference call on Wednesday, April 7, 2021.
Julian Leeser MP, Chair of the House of Representatives Standing Committee on Indigenous Affairs, noted that stakeholders appearing would include health organisations, Indigenous businesses, university researchers and government agencies.
"These hearings will contribute significantly to the existing body of evidence for this inquiry," he said.
"The committee looks forward to discussing gaps and opportunities in the workforce and future growth sectors that could result in employment and enterprise options for Indigenous Australians," Mr Leeser said.
"We will be particularly interested to hear from Indigenous business owners about their experiences running successful enterprises. It will be particularly useful to learn about present challenges and how Government can better facilitate business opportunities."
