Amanda Young, First Nations Foundation CEO
Tanya Hosch: AFL General Manager Inclusion and Social Policy
Shelley Cable, Miss NAIDOC Perth, 100 Days of Deadly Mob
The first Resilient Women's conference was a stunning success with speakers from Australian business, media, banks and communities sharing what helps women be financially able to thrive and wear the shocks of life.
The Money Story panel shared the experiences of Indigenous Australians. When the First Nations Foundation CEO Amanda Young said there are Aboriginal millionaires now if you google, you couldn't find any media mention of it, Twitter went crazy. Her message was simple: financial literacy without financial inclusion is meaningless ... and financial inclusion without financial literacy is dangerous. That's why our Foundation is in such a hurry to teach money skills to as many First Nations people as we can. Help our cause - we have a generation of wealth to grow in Indigenous Australia!
Another major highlight was the launch of Financial Inclusion Action Plans by trailblazing Australian banks, government and institutions.
