Indigenous Business Representative Body consultation
Have your say about the Indigenous Business Representative Body.
The reference group is consulting with Queensland Indigenous business owners about the potential establishment of a representative body for First Nations businesses.
The discussion will explore the need for a voice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses. It would enable Indigenous business owners as a collective to self-manage while offering the freedom to pursue economic opportunity and protecting Indigenous business interest and rights.
Consultation will be managed through:
- Face to face workshops across Queensland
- An online survey
- Online yarning circles
- One on one phone calls
Please complete the online survey or if you would like to be contacted, please email your name, phone number (during business hours) and a brief detail of your enquiry to RegionalInnovation@dtis.qld.gov.au
