Presented by the Faculty of IT and William Cooper Institute

On Friday 9 July, Monash Faculty of Information Technology (IT) partnered with the William Cooper Institute hosted a special NAIDOC Week celebration. This inaugural event involved a panel discussion with key members of Monash's academic community, focusing on the 2021 NAIDOC theme of 'Heal Country!’

During the webinar, our panellists explored how we can:

  • strengthen our engagement with Indigenous communities
  • grow Indigenous participation in student cohorts
  • collaborate at all levels to help Indigenous people and businesses participate strongly in the competitive ICT industry
  • embed the insights and perspectives of Indigenous Traditional Owners into academic endeavours.

These conversations centred around how technology could play a key role in advancing First Australians, and the importance of Indigenous voice in research, education and industry

This year NAIDOC Week was held from Sunday 4 July to Sunday 11 July.
