Attending the occasion was Fiona Madigan, Senior Country Manager, INCO Australia, who was honoured to be amongst some of Google’s partners who had travelled from all over the country to help share in this momentous occasion.
After a smoking ceremony and Indigenous dance, a Welcome to Country, led by Uncle Lloyd commenced the formal proceedings, followed by talks from Geoff Scott, National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples, and Davina Shearer and Cindy Wei from Google and members of its RAP Team, plus many others.
Fiona says, “We all had the opportunity to hear about Google’s three-year plan on reconciliation, as well how we can support The Uluru Statement, which needs 9 million yes votes - highlighting, not only the challenge that lies ahead, but also the hope for our country and our First Nations People.”
In celebrating the RAP, we are thankful to the Google team for its partnership with INCO Australia as we implement the First Australians Digitisation Fund to enable Indigenous non-profits to deliver tech innovation to reach more First Nations people. It's been an incredible year with this program that is bringing great impact. Pictured: Fiona Madigan from INCO Australia, Davina Shearer from Google, Cindy Wei from Google.
