At NIAA our shared values and behaviours underpin how we work. To achieve our vision to ensure Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are heard, recognised and empowered, we must be a united team with a culture that positions us with the right capability, passion and pride to make a difference.
The impact of these values and behaviours go beyond our internal work practices. As we each live out these values and behaviours within the workplace, they inform the way we do our business with each other and our partners and stakeholders.
The NIAA values and behaviours were developed with input from across the Agency. Staff at all levels and across all areas of the NIAA participated to develop and agree our shared values and behaviours.

- We respect multiple perspectives
We seek, value and embed multiple views in everything we do
- We are authentic
We are honest, share the right information, and are brave in giving feedback
- We are professional and act with integrity
We are bold and make decisions backed by evidence
- We invest in each other's success
We ensure that everyone is given the opportunity to shine
- We deliver with purpose
We are focused on delivering the Government's agenda to improve the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Leadership behaviours are the behaviours we will see from staff in leadership and supervisory roles if they
