EMPOWER Good Governance


The Indigenous sector is under pressure and scrutiny by government and the public to improve outcomes, accountability and responsibility with limited resources, in the most challenging of environments.

How do we achieve this so members, directors and management have a shared understanding of their roles and governance and to enable them to work together to achieve their objectives and optimum outcomes?


The workshop process and EMPOWER tool kit align the board and management giving all a shared understanding of governance, management and their respective roles and responsibilities.

  • Directors know and understand their roles and obligations.
  • Builds capacity, skills and competencies.
