Director development

FDIO hosts a series of regular executive and director development workshops, seminars and roundtables. These events bring together directors and executives of Indigenous organisations in Metro and Regional areas to share case studies and provide practical solutions to issues of governance, business and economic development, and community investment. FDIO events also provide a forum and support network for Indigenous organisations to discuss issues of common concern and collectively broker solutions.
