First Nations Foundation CEO Amanda Young was on an Indigenous financial inclusion panel with Tanya Hosch (General Manager Diversity AFL) and Shelly Cable (100 Days of Deadly Mob) at the Good Shepherd Microfinance event, Resilient Women.
This event showed us all how important women are to the economy of Australia. Indigenous women who will be millionaires are coming and we have to get ready, learning money skills asap!

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.

Around 200 Indigenous trainees all over the country will receive money management training thanks to funding from Financial Literacy Australia.

Knowing how to set your money goals, help yourself and your mob from the start of your working career makes a huge difference!!
Kick off is in 2017. We expect a great season from our new players.
