The GLSC has a corporate vision with a strategic focus:
To consult with and effectively represent Aboriginal people within its region particularly with regard to the achievement of meaningful and comprehensive native title outcomes and other land justice initiatives, while performing its functions under the Native Title Act 1993 (Cth) to a highly professional level.
The GLSC’s mission is to provide and enhance Native Title outcomes, improve Land Use and Heritage, and make reconnections to the land for the Aboriginal peoples in our region. As such the core focus of the organisation is:
1. Meet our statutory obligations in obtaining Native Title;
2. Support and build capacity for PBCs;
3. Advise and protect Aboriginal culture, traditions and unique ways of land Management; and
4. Build economic opportunity and equity for Aboriginal peoples and communities.
Our core values are the fundamentals behind why we are in business and operational. They revolve around two fundamental values ofHARMONY and MUTUAL RESPECT. Much of what the GLSC does are based on values that show an attitude of determination to achieve, commitment to see results come to fruition, and bettering ourselves to meet our outcomes.
All members, staff, elders, clients and stakeholder must commit to our values to work with us. Our specific stated values are:
· Respect for elders, members of the Aboriginal community and one another;
· Display of highly professional attitudes and work quality that accompany accountability for actions;
· Responsiveness to client needs;
· Commitment to achieving the best outcome for communities and Aboriginal peoples without self-interest at play;
· Efficiency, fairness and transparency in performing our functions; and
· Providing a safe, diverse and provider of choice workplace.
These values are reflected in the organisation’s focus on employee advocacy, open and transparent communications and excellent standards of service delivery.
