National Talkblack 110823

We had:

Tiahni Adamson, Indigenous wildlife conservation biologist, talking about National Science Week this year (12th-20th August). In her current role as the Lead Community Engagement Officer for CH4 Global, Tiahni is part of a dynamic team that research and foster sustainable seaweed aquaculture, with a goal of zero methane agriculture.

Ann-Marie, National Coordinator – Young Indigenous Women in STEM Academy, talking about Young Indigenous Women’s STEM Academy Advances Diversity in STEM. The data indicates that women, including young women, are not choosing STEM careers, and Indigenous women are far less likely to pursue a STEM qualification. This is a significant issue for Indigenous women’s prosperity and economic standing, considering half of all future job tasks will require STEM skills.

Tos Mahoney, Creative Producer of The Journey Down: Tura Artistic Director, talking about ‘The Journey Down’, a 3456 km celebration of connection and country presented by Tura Music in partnership with the West Australian Museum, taking place from 24 August to 16 September.
