About Us

Indigenous Accountants Australia is a joint initiative of CPA Australia and Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people make up 2 per cent of the Australian population, but this is not reflected in the accounting profession. We set up Indigenous Accountants Australia to try and help address this.

Our aim is to attract more Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people into the accounting profession, by working with students, universities and employers. By helping Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people gain a rewarding and financially secure career, we believe the initiative will bring significant benefits to Indigenous communities, local businesses and the broader economy.

What we do

We raise awareness of the benefits of accounting within Indigenous communities and connect Indigenous students to careers in the business world.
