Indigitek's mission is to create an inclusive community of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with a passion for creating a positive future in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).
We hold events across the country that aim to present the amazing stories of our mob working in STEM. These are an opportunity for like-minded blackfellas and our supporters to get together in an inclusive environment to meet and share stories over a feed.
We are extremely excited to hear from one of the foremost First Nations female in STEM. See you there!
