Reconciliation Australia and the BHP Foundation have proudly partnered to deliver the Indigenous Governance Awards since their inception in 2005.
In 2018 we welcomed the Australian Indigenous Governance Institute (AIGI) as co-host and we continue to work together around Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander governance and success.

Studies around the world and in Australia show that good governance is the key to building and sustaining healthy, prosperous communities, and we want to recognise, applaud and share those achievements.
