One of the great initiatives that the GSB team has been able to deliver in recent times was the Arrow Indigenous Leadership Program. QUT GSB partnered with Arrow Energy to deliver a customised leadership development initiative to a group of Indigenous leaders from across all parts of Arrow’s operations.
The program combined intensive workshops, group projects, mentoring and an on-country cultural heritage tour hosted by traditional owners in Dalby. Indigenous leaders from across Queensland, including many from the Brisbane Council of Elders, participated as guest speakers and shared their wisdom and stories as resilient leaders of people. It was a great way of demonstrating the power of partnerships and alliances in driving positive change.
Senior leaders from across the organisation volunteered as mentors to participants and provided invaluable support and guidance. We were thrilled to have the strong support and involvement of a number of Aunties from the Brisbane Council of Elders, who participated as guest speakers and shared their wisdom and stories as resilient leaders within our community.
