Our QTIC Indigenous Employee Networks are supported by The Star Entertainment Group and have been established to develop strategies, demonstrate leadership and ultimately increase the participation of Indigenous staff in tourism and hospitality to reach the goal of "2020 new faces in the tourism industry by 2020".
Indigenous employees who are currently employed in the industry and who have careers and/or long term goals that are the main influencers when encouraging further participation of new Indigenous employees.
There are currently three chapters established with each group of outstanding and motivated Indigenous employees meeting every two months to share ideas, strategies and opportunities for the network to encourage more Indigenous people to consider a career in the vibrant and diverse tourism and hospitality sector.
