Aboriginal business leaders and entrepreneurs in the Goldfields will be better equipped to grow and sustain their enterprise with a new leadership support program announced.
The Aboriginal Business Leadership Program, which has been successfully implemented in the South-West and Mid-West regions, will be rolled out in the Goldfields-Esperance region to improve economic development, business and employment opportunities for Aboriginal people.
The program will develop and enhance Aboriginal business networks; and support Aboriginal businesses to develop their skills, knowledge and confidence to ensure they thrive and prosper.
Local businesses will assist in co-designing the leadership program that will include access to tailored leadership mentoring, knowledge sharing and business development expertise for up to 15 participants, over a four-month period. The program will assist current and emerging leaders to develop a business initiative as part of the training, supported through a mentoring and coaching framework.
The Aboriginal Business Leadership Program will be delivered by the Goldfields-Esperance Development Commission in partnership with Aboriginal community leaders and with support from the WA Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development.
Those interested in the program are encouraged to contact the Goldfields-Esperance Development Commission on (08) 9080 5000 or visit their website.
