Event Overview

Empowered Indigenous communities will provide the transformation that is needed for future generations.

The goal of the summit is to create an energetic and dynamic Indigenous community that is balanced with cultural, social and sustainable economic development which will support the future generations to flourish. The aim is to provide pathways for empowerment through improved access to Indigenous education, supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people into employment and accelerating Indigenous businesses to thrive.

Third Sector’s 2nd National Indigenous Empowerment Summit is the most comprehensive event for Indigenous leadership and advocacy. It will provide attendees with practical tools and strategies to develop culturally appropriate practices for schools and workplaces, improve the Indigenous economy, support Indigenous businesses to navigate through the uncertainty and most importantly collaborate across businesses to reach newer heights of success.
