Indigenous Employment at QUT
QUT's Indigenous Australians Employment Strategy 2018 - 2021
QUT’s Indigenous Australians Employment Strategy (IAES) outlines the University’s approach and commitment to increasing employment and development opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The IAES aims for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff representation to be at least 3 per cent of the total workforce.
The intention of QUT’s IAES is to build a high performing and sustainable cohort of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander academics, researchers, professional and senior staff through a multi-faceted and coordinated approach. To achieve this QUT, will invest in resources and strategies to attract, retain, support and develop Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander talent. This will be fortified by a workplace culture which understands, values and respects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and culture.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Action Plan
Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Action Plan brings together the strategies of Blueprint5 in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and guides QUT faculties, divisions and institutes in their strategic planning.
Working at QUT
We demonstrate a strong commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and a history of leadership in Indigenous education.
QUT coordinates a series of university-wide events to showcase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture, community and talent. This program coincides with National Reconciliation Week, NAIDOC Week and the Coming of the Light.

We pay respect to their Elders, lores, customs and creation spirits. We recognise that these lands have always been places of teaching, research and learning. QUT acknowledges the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people play within the QUT community.
