Join us this NAIDOC Week for a very special masterclass on building sustainable and high impact programs for First Nations and other historically marginalised communities.

Facilitator Adam Davids is a First Nations not-for-profit leader and Fulbright scholar. He has spent the past few years researching how some of the world’s longest-standing institutions are recognised for their impact in achieving social, economic and political justice for racial minority people – and how these learnings can be applied in the Australian context.


Drawing on learnings from successful institutions that serve racial minorities, Adam will take participants on a journey of his insights.
We’ll cover:

  • Six key attributes to drive sustainability and impact.
  • The importance of being truthful to the vision you serve as an organisation whether you are a non-Indigenous program working in Indigenous communities or you’re an Indigenous-led organisation.
  • Intergenerational impact, and how we know we’ve made a difference.
  • Discussion around what the goals in the community are and what we are collectively working towards.
  • Tips on how to bring these discussions and architecture into the board room, and why it’s important to ask yourself and your organisation some difficult questions.


What should I expect from this webinar?

You’ll come away from this masterclass with a nuanced understanding of the common challenges that not-for-profits face and opportunities to build successful, sustainable and high impact programs. You’ll also learn tangible ways to bring these discussions to your organisation, including staff, funders, your board and other relevant stakeholders.


Who is this masterclass for?

Anyone connected to the not-for-profit sector that serves historically marginalised communities such as First Nations people. Organisations that have in-house programs that serve Indigenous Australians are also encouraged to participate.
