Moving Ahead strategy

  • Introduction

    A strategic approach to increasing the participation of Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islander people in Queensland's economy 2016-2022 (Moving Ahead).

  • Priority 1: Build a more skilled and diverse workforce

    Improvements to training and upskilling within a population provide a significant opportunity to increase workforce participation, improve productivity and create opportunities for growth.

  • Priority 2: Focus on youth and plan for success

    We need to prioritise the improvement of economic participation outcomes for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders, and build a pipeline of future opportunity.

  • Priority 3: Build our partnership with industry

    Industry is a key partner with significant resources and expertise to contribute to closing the gap in economic participation outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Queenslanders.

  • Priority 4: Increase entrepreneurship, business growth and innovation

    Indigenous entrepreneurs and small businesses need to be supported to develop and access relevant market opportunities in order to create jobs now and into the future.

  • Priority 5: Overcome barriers and realise opportunities to completion

    We need to overcome barriers that prohibit economic participation, and support individuals to ensure they gain the maximum benefit from available opportunities.

  • Case for change

    A new approach is required to ensure Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples are better able to participate in Queensland's economy.

  • Implementation

    The successful implementation of the Moving Ahead strategy relies on a genuine partnership approach between all Queensland Government departments.
