Coming to Melbourne for the first time in 2024!

#AMPLIFYYOURVOICE

 

Melbourne welcomes the Indigenous Leadership Summit for the first time in 2024, aligning with the spirit of the National NAIDOC Week theme: ‘Keep the Fire Burning! Black, Loud & Proud’! This summit marks a significant milestone in our ongoing effort to amplify First Nations Voices in Australian leadership.

This isn’t just about discussions – it’s about making real, impactful changes. Drawing inspiration from Victoria’s rich cultural heritage and progressive ethos, this event represents a pivotal moment in our journey towards bridging generational divides.

While strides have been made in acknowledging Indigenous perspectives, there remains a pressing need to translate this recognition into tangible results, particularly in the realm of employment. The 2021 census clearly revealed a pronounced employment gap between First Nations communities and other Australians, underscoring the urgency of our mission.

 

ABOUT THE EVENT

The Indigenous Leadership Summit 2024 Melbourne is more than an event; it’s a springboard for impactful change. This event unites Australia’s most influential minds to engage in bold and transformative conversations. We will explore and address the critical issues surrounding Indigenous careers, leadership advancements, and integration across all sectors.

 

By bringing together CEOs, Indigenous Affairs experts, and esteemed First Nations leaders, we are committed to forging concrete pathways for impactful change. Our focus extends beyond employment – we are dedicated to driving positive developments in education, health, and overall social well-being.

Join us in Melbourne, renowned for its spirit of inclusivity, as we collaboratively shape a future that not only embraces but also elevates First Nations leadership.

 

I look forward to seeing you there,
