Indigenous Accounting Forum

Indigenous businesses are growing, with the help of strong support from federal and state governments, and a significant community shift towards buying and transacting with more sustainable and inclusive businesses. Now is a great time to be providing professional services into this emerging sector.
Join us at the inaugural Indigenous Accounting Forum Brisbane and learn more about the unique indigenous approach to business, indigenous participation in the accounting profession, and indigenous accounting education. As this is an important event for the accounting profession it is being co-organised with CPA Australia, Indigenous Accountants Australia and AFAANZ. Indigenous peoples are dramatically under-represented in the profession and this Forum has been designed to bring together interested parties to discuss future ideas and opportunities to create networks and build our knowledge in this space.

Who should attend?

Members or representatives from your organisation tasked with diversity and inclusion initiatives, those incorporating indigenous participation as employers of choice and those with an interest in corporate social responsibility. By joining our Forum you will discover new knowledge needed to navigate the future economy, to better support clients, colleagues and your teams.
