WHY ATTEND 

Today’s society is plagued with stories of all the wrongs in our communities when in fact nothing could be further from the truth. For years as Indigenous women, we have strives to better our families which has given rise to countless numbers of great initiatives highlighting Indigenous monumental achievements. To share this knowledge has always been our cultural way; as such, we feel that it is time to start promoting these ideas so that others may be able to share and spread the knowledge to all Indigenous women.

ICS is committed to delivering you a conference experience of the highest quality and holds the health & safety of all attendees in the utmost regard. We will be progressing with our conference in a face-to-face manner as planned. Throughout the event, we will be strictly adhering to all measures of social distancing regulations, and health & safety precautions to create a safe environment to connect, learn and network under the industry-approved COVID-19 Safe Plan.

Empowering Delegates

Indigenous people, nationally and internationally, will come together in an environment that can lead to the sharing of information via their cultural and historical values. The conference is designed as an educational tool to develop networking opportunities and information sharing to the wider community on Indigenous women’s issues. The event will focus on Indigenous women’s issues and whole of wellbeing through the encouragement of strong leadership, empowerment and self-determination within our communities. Throughout the three days, we will be facilitating small group discussions with empowering and inspirational guest speakers. The conference emphasizes on the positives of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander resilience and determination to strive for a better tomorrow without the constraints of negative stereotyping which is more prevalent due to social media and bad media coverage. Today as Indigenous women, we are making great strides to improve both ourselves and our communities. This event guarantees the opportunity to enlarge your network and information base, thus empowering all delegates to make greater informed decisions within their professional and extended communities.
