This Masterclass will connect, educate and promote Indigenous people aged 18 to 35 years who are or hope to be active in the business of governance locally, regionally and nationally.

This Masterclass will combine guest speakers, presentations and small group activities to form an interactive workshop. It will cover critical areas in Indigenous Governance, providing a learning platform to build the confidence of young Indigenous people to engage in the governance of their communities and organisations.
