    Hi Everyone,

    The 2016 Global Indigenous Women's Conference is scheduled on September 12-14, 2016 at Stamford Grand Hotel Glenelg Adelaide South Australia. The conference is hosted by The National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Women’s Alliance and Indigenous Conference Services (Australia) with great line up of speakers from around Australia and internationally. The aim is to provide a platform for Indigenous Women to celebrate their achievements in life within their home, family, community and workplace.


    The event will focus on empowerment, strong leadership and self-determination of globally. Throughout the three day event, we will be facilitating small group discussions with informative Guest Speakers from all around the global. The event emphasizes the positives of  Indigenous resilience and determination to strive for a better tomorrow without the constraints of the negative stereotyping which is more prevalent due to social media and bad media coverage.


    Today’s society is plagued with stories of all the wrong in our communities when in fact nothing could be further from the truth. For years as Indigenous women all over the world, have strived to better our communities and families which have given rise to countless numbers of great initiatives and as such one of the ways to highlight these great achievements is to share this knowledge which has always been our cultural way. As such, we feel that it is time to start promoting these ideas so that others may be able to share and spread the knowledge. If you are interested in attending or present please refer to my Profile contact details.

    Thank you for your time,

    Ms Tor-qauisia Robe-Broome
