The Victorian Government's Aboriginal Employment Strategy
The Victorian Government launched a new 5-year Aboriginal Employment Strategy in July 2017.
That strategy is Barring Djinang.
Its primary goal is to create sustainable improvement in Aboriginal employment.
The strategy's focus is to support the work of public sector agencies. It provides guidance and initiatives across the entire employee life cycle. This addresses not only attraction and recruitment, but also development, retention and progression.
Barring Djinang is consistent with the government’s commitment to Aboriginal self-determination. Its success relies on building meaningful partnerships with Aboriginal communities across the state.
The Victorian Public Sector Commission's Aboriginal Employment Unit is leading the strategy's implementation.

Barring Djinang replaces Karreeta Yirramboi. Which was the prior strategic plan for Aboriginal employment, and ran from 2010 to 2015.
