impact2021: Indigenous Voice - Engaging our community in the co-design process

4 May 2021, 12 PM - 4 May 2021, 1:30 PM

In our two-part impact2021 webinar series, we invite you to join us to find out more about the National Co-Design Group for Indigenous Voice.

Indigenous Australians, while owning or managing almost 50 per cent of the continent, do not have a formal say over government policies that affect them.

In October 2019, the Minister for Indigenous Australians announced a co-design process for an Indigenous Voice to government and parliament. In January 2021, the Interim Report on Indigenous Voice was released for public comment.

In our two-part impact2021 webinar series, we invite you to join us to find out more about this particular process and to hear why the National Co-Design Group for Indigenous Voice believes Indigenous-led formal advice to government and parliament is important and necessary.

The webinar panellists will also discuss how the Australian public can participate in the co-design process.
