Early bird registration closing soon: Reimagining Public Administration Conference
  • Published Date: 09 November 2018

ANZSOG’s Reimagining Public Administration: First Peoples, governance and new paradigms conference, held with the support of the Australian Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet, will bring together public sector leaders, not for profits, academics and Indigenous representatives to imaging a better, more responsive, relationship with government and a better future for First Peoples.

This conference will be an exciting opportunity for you to help chart a new course for Indigenous affairs in Australia and New Zealand.

There are only five working days left to take advantage of ANZSOG’s early bird offer. If you register before November 16, you and your organisation will receive discounts of over 10 per cent of the cost.

The 2019 conference will provide a space to explore new ideas on how best to engage with Indigenous communities, and include Indigenous knowledge and culture in public service practice. It will feature breakout sessions and plenaries on topics including justice, education, health, and the role of self-determination.

Speakers include former Australian of the Year Adam Goodes, Melbourne University Professor Marcia Langton, Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet Deputy Secretary Professor Ian Anderson, Deputy Secretary of Crown/Māori relations at the New Zealand Ministry of Justice Lil Anderson and former Special Assistant to President Obama for Native American Affairs Dr Karen Diver.

The conference will build on the success of 2017’s Indigenous Affairs and Public Administration: Can’t we do better?, which was attended by more than 250 Māori, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representatives, other Indigenous peoples, public servants from state and federal governments, and academics from across Australia and New Zealand.
