Milparanga – Developing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Leadership

Milparanga is a leadership development program, formerly known as the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Leaders Program (NATSILP). Milparanga allows Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people to engage in powerful and different conversations.

The program aims to support Indigenous Australian leaders to:

  • Grow as an individual
  • Develop their leadership capabilities, including governance and decision making
  • Co-create robust conversations for powerful shifts across the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander landscape
  • Broaden their perspectives and act together for the greater good

During the program you will:

  • be exposed to expert Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander practitioners who have been challenging assumptions and shifting approaches in this space for decades
  • engage in robust conversations that will honour your existing skills and knowledge, as well as provoke your thoughts and assumptions
  • engage with mentors/coaches/critical friends for at least a six-month period. The mentors will be part of the facilitation team that will support you through this exciting leadership program.

You will become part of a network of leaders who will support each other as you continue to develop Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leadership. Milparanga is an 11-day, two-session program.

  • are an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander person
