Milparanga is a leadership development program, formerly known as the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Leaders Program (NATSILP).
Milparanga allows Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people to engage in powerful and different conversations.
The program aims to support Indigenous Australian leaders to:
- Grow as an individual
- Develop their leadership capabilities, including governance and decision making
- Co-create robust conversations for powerful shifts across the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander landscape
- Broaden their perspectives and act together for the greater good.
WHAT AND HOW
During the program you will:
- be exposed to expert Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners who have been challenging assumptions and shifting approaches in this space for decades
- engage in robust conversations that will honour your existing skills and knowledge, as well as provoke your thoughts and assumptions
- engage with mentors/coaches/critical friends for at least a six-month period. The mentors will be part of the facilitation team that will support you through this exciting leadership program.
You will become part of network of leaders who will support each other as you continue to develop Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership.
