About the Conference

Collaboration is a fundamental part of supporting the health and growth of the Indigenous economy, of businesses and enterprises and communities: Don’t miss your chance to learn from past and present case studies and research and connect and share with over 400 others who will be attending this great event.

IBECC 2016 represents a unique opportunity to hear Indigenous business leaders, corporate representatives, leading academics and policy makers talk about the new opportunities for Indigenous people and communities being created by the rapidly expanding Indigenous business, enterprise and corporations sector.

IBECC 2016 is founded on a partnership between the UWA Business School, Centre for Social Impact and the UWA School of Indigenous Studies.

We hope you can join us in December 2016 at the University of Western Australia for what promises to be a great conference full of ideas, action, networking and opportunities.
