SPEAKER - Carol Anne Hilton, CEO and Founder, Indigenomics Institute and Global Centre for Indigenomics 

Carol Anne Hilton

According to Carol Anne, Indigenomics honours the powerful thinking of indigenous wisdom of local economy, relationships and human values. Indigenomics is about increasing the role and visibility of indigenous peoples in the new economy.

Carol Anne is also the author of a book by the same title “Indigenomics – Taking a Seat at the Economics Table.” In her work at the Global Center of Indigenomics, she is facilitating collective Indigenous economic leadership, knowledge development and creating generational value, while building the space for valuing Indigenous worldviews of economy and well being through culture, digital arts and technology.

TE WAKA PROJECT - Why this event? 

This event is a part of the Te Waka Project, a digital storytelling campaign and platform featuring stories of impact created in collaboration with First Nations people and the "Business For Good" network of Australia and Aotearoa/New Zealand.

The project is stewarding the journey of Te Waka from Australia to Amsterdam for the 2023 Edition of the Social Enterprise World Forum. The journey includes a group of 14 First Nations delegates from Australia and New Zealand stopping in Victoria BC to connect with Carol Anne and her team at the Indigenomics Institute.

    • The Te Waka story and its purpose. How it represents the social enterprise movement globally.
    • Highlighting existing “First Traders” social enterprise stories, leadership and values 
    • Capturing, producing and amplifying the story of the First Nations-led trip to the 2023 Social Enterprise World Forum to Amsterdam -- the main work we are seeking funding for.
