Indigenous Business, Enterprise and Corporations conference

Indigenous Business, Enterprise and Corporations Conference

Welcome to the second annual Indigenous Business and Enterprise Conference hosted by the UWA Business School Centre for Social Impact.

This conference will bring together a cross-section of people from different backgrounds to share and discuss their knowledge from the various sectors that are responsible for creating exciting and new economic opportunities for Indigenous people and their communities.

The 3rd Indigenous Business, Enterprise and Corporations Conference (IBECC) will be held at the University of Western Australia Business School on 1-2 December 2014

The business of strong futures

What sort of environments and conditions are needed to grow healthy Indigenous businesses, corporations and enterprises?

How do we nurture the ideas, talent and leadership needed to drive change?

Where do government and the corporate sector best fit within Indigenous-led economies and how can different sectors collaborate more effectively to achieve system-level change?

What can boards and management teams do to develop resilience and agility in the face of rapidly shifting community dynamics, policy and funding settings?

IBECC 2014 offers a rigorous and exciting forum for dialogue and exchange on how we can foster the health and growth of Indigenous businesses, enterprises and corporations across their life-cycle. Indigenous businesses, enterprises and corporations are diverse in terms of their size, structure and location. But what they do have in common is the coming together of people to form a new and united body to achieve a shared goal or purpose.

We invite you to join business leaders, social entrepreneurs, community representatives, policy-makers, emerging voices and researchers to connect and contribute to a program that amplifies IBECC’s cross-sector knowledge and practice. Answering these questions is vital if we are to remain committed to nurturing the health and growth of Indigenous communities and the wider society in which they operate.

IBECC 2014 is founded on a partnership between The University of Western Australia Business School and The University of Western Australia’s School of Indigenous Studies and is hosted by The University of Western Australia Centre for Social Impact.

We acknowledge that this conference is held on the traditional lands of the Whadjuk Noongar who remain the spiritual and cultural custodians of their land and continue to practice their values, languages, beliefs and knowledge. We offer our respects to Elders past and present and through the Elders, to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
