|Centre for Social Impact (UWA) National Conference 2011 : Indigenous Business, Corporations and Entrepreneurship: New Models, Stronger Communities
The Centre for Social Impact (UWA) National Conference 2011 will shape opinion and understanding, and share best practice and research on the role of Indigenous business and Indigenous corporations in expanding economic opportunities for Indigenous people and creating positive social and economic impact for Indigenous communities.
