Stronger Smarter is based on a belief that every Indigenous Australian should have the opportunity to reach their full potential. This means the same opportunities for everyone in both schooling and employment. We know this is not always easy and many workplaces face complex challenges within their staff, stakeholders and local communities.

The Stronger Smarter Institute believes, however, that organisations and communities already hold the knowledge and expertise they need to approach these challenges. The Stronger Smarter Approach begins by developing a positive sense of cultural identity and then looks deeply at how we communicate and interact with others, using the concept of ‘High-Expectations Relationships’.

Over a decade, the Institute has brought these discussions to the forefront of Australia’s education system. We have also sparked discussion on how High-Expectations Relationships are adopted beyond the classroom and can be intrinsic practice in the boardroom, office or sporting field.

The Stronger Smarter Workplaces Program is universally applicable, but is particularly relevant for organisations seeking to build their Indigenous employment strategies or organisations who operate in regional and remote Australia and are seeking to employ local staff and collaborate and connect
with the local Indigenous community.
