The National Centre of Indigenous Excellence in partnership with the Telstra Foundation has launched national consultations with Indigenous Australian communities to inform the development of the country's first Indigenous digital excellence strategy.
It is intended that the national strategy will close the divide that separates many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians from digital participation as well as help Indigenous communities create their own prosperity through the application of, and participation in, technology.
The national consultations will collect the insights, experiences and aspirations from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and people from aroud the country, which will inform the strategy.
If you're an Indigenous Australian, it’s easy to take part. You can:

follow and share your views on social media using #ouridxfuture (now closed)
Born from the world’s oldest living cultures, it is fitting that we lead in this new era of innovation. With our cultures at the core of all that we do, we will
ENVISION, MAP & CELEBRATE
a future of Indigenous Digital Excellence.
Kirstie Parker, NCIE CEO
In a world underpinned by connection, there has
NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME
for Indigenous communities to create their own digital excellence strategy.
Telstra is proud to be a partner and supporter in this journey.
Jackie Coates, Head of Telstra Foundation
