The immense contribution of Indigenous women to Australia’s culture, campus, and history was in the spotlight during this week’s annual NAIDOC Week celebrations, held at UOW on Monday 9 July.

The national event this year focuses on the theme Because Of Her, We Can!, which recognises the significant role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women have played, and continue to play, across all levels of society.

On Monday, a panel of academics and professional staff from UOW explored the theme and shared their experiences in a fascinating and far-reaching panel discussion, which illustrated the contributions Indigenous women make to the community, to families, and to the nation as a whole. The panel also discussed what needs to be done to ensure a positive future for Indigenous men and women.
