- Dr Heather Kember, Assistant Director – Strategy, Institute for Regional Futures, The University of Newcastle

The theme of NAIDOC Week in 2023 is ‘For Our Elders’ and the panelists discussed inclusive planning, and how we can respectfully partner and build trusted and transparent relationships with Indigenous Australian Elders and communities.
