How can governments combat disadvantage in Australian indigenous communities? How do we promote opportunities for all? What are the implications of the 'Asian Century'?

Eidos considers connecting evidence-based research to cabinet and policy-makers crucial to creating efficient, effective, equitable social policies.

In 2011, in the context of the disparity in employment outcomes between indigenous and non indigenous Australians, Eidos convened national conference on 'Indigenous Skills Development', in conjunction with the Australian Catholic University, Griffith University, Charles Darwin University, and state and federal indigenous training initiatives. Further, in 2012, in response to the 'gap' between the formal educational attainment of indigenous and non-indigenous Australians, in conjunction with the University of Sydney and the University of Pretoria, Eidos created the 'Classic Wallabies Exchange Program' , which provides mentoring, financial support, and community engagement projects to indigenous Australian and South African tertiary students. Most recently, in 2012, as the Federal Government released the 'Australia in the Asian Century White Paper' , Eidos CEO Bruce Muirhead was invited to address the Netter Centre at the University of pennsylvania on the current challenges for Australian and Asian schools, universities and communities.

In 2013, Eidos will continue those conversations, by continuing to convene both 'Indigenous Skills Development' conference and the 'Classic Wallabies Exchange Program' , and establishing a high-level roundtable on the current challenges for Police and Security, in collaboration with Griffith University.
