The Australian Indigenous Leadership Centre (AILC) courses unlock opportunities for Indigenous people of all ages to develop their careers and expand the ways they contribute to the community.

We offer training for Indigenous Leadership and Mentoring, Business Governance, and short courses in specific leadership skills and diversity mentoring.

We also deliver workshops and courses for non-Indigenous people across Australia in the areas of Diversity Mentoring, Cultural Awareness and Appreciation. 

Based in Canberra, with a satellite office in Darwin, the AILC takes programs across the country to where they are most needed and remains a not-for-profit company owned and controlled by Indigenous Australians.

Our courses and assessment tasks allow for a wide range of skill sets, learning styles, interests and preferred means of cultural expression.

We welcome donations from organisations or members of the public who recognise the critical importance of Indigenous leadership to create a more equitable future for all Australians.
