The First Nations Foundation featured strongly in the Indigenous Accounting and Business Conference held in Geelong by Deakin University on 26-27 October 2016.
Our CEO Amanda Young (pictured) gave her keynote speech on Indigenous financial literacy, Chair Ian Hamm spoke on Indigenous financial inclusion and Deputy Chair Karen Milward spoke about Indigenous business and economic opportunity.
Indigenous accountants, business people, financial analysts, economists and marketers were there, showing the way to a bright future in the financial services sector. We were all inspired by them, the speakers and the wonderful work by Deakin Uni to create such a warm conference.
The First Nations Foundation is excited to be presenting at the Many Ways To Help conference on gambling in Melbourne 17-19 October 2016. We talk about how our My Moola program helps Indigenous people build their confidence and positively reframe their relationship with money. When you take control of money, you take control of your life. Gambling and other unhelpful behaviour like avoidance or too much credit risk become less important as you move towards your money goals.
This is why First Nations Foundation has been selected to train Indigenous workers around Victoria at Aboriginal community-controlled organisations by the Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation. They have seen how great My Moola is and how much it helps.
