Indigenous Focus Day promotes digital inclusion projects and addresses the opportunities for, and obstacles to, the digital inclusion of remote First Nations people and organisations. Participants help develop recommendations for a Remote and Regional Indigenous Telecommunications Policy, and gain valuable skills to advocate for increased connectivity.
The Indigenous Focus Day came into being after participants in the Broadband for the Bush Forum perceived a need for a dedicated forum for First Nations people to talk about their digital inclusion needs and challenges. The Indigenous Focus Day is an opportunity for Indigenous people to engage and collaborate with their peers. It is an interactive event, facilitated primarily by First Nations peoples and organisations.
