Tourism Australia partners with Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience

Tourism Australia partners with Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience
March 16, 2015

Tourism Australia has partnered with the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) educational mentoring program which provides support to Indigenous students by providing them with the skills, opportunities and confidence to grow and succeed.

The partnership will help Tourism Australia achieve its Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) target of doubling Tourism Australia’s employment of Indigenous staff over a two-year period.

AIME supports Indigenous students through high school, university and into employment at the same rate as all Australian students.

Introducing the partnership, AIME Chief Executive Jack Manning Bancroft said “we look forward to working with Tourism Australia to help a generation of strong, powerful, proud, confident, funny, successful and talented Indigenous people rise up to stand tall.”

Tourism Australia’s RAP committee will implement initiatives throughout the year to support AIME, most notably National Hoodie Day which is scheduled to take place on 10th July to celebrate NAIDOC Week.

The employment target together with a number of other longer-term strategies contained within Tourism Australia’s RAP resulted in Tourism Australia becoming the first Commonwealth Government agency to meet new ‘stretch’ levels targets set by Reconciliation Australia.
