True Tracks: a pathway to Indigenous engagement

Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property for Business

True Tracks is a unique professional development workshop that will enhance your Indigenous engagement and understanding of Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP). It is specifically designed in response to the needs of Australian corporate partners.

Indigenous Cultural and Intellectual Property (ICIP) refers to Indigenous peoples' cultural expression, cultural knowledge and heritage. Many businesses deal with ICIP as part of their Indigenous engagement programs, employment and training, procurement and Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs). But has your company adequately considered cultural protocols in developing and implementing its Indigenous programs?


Prepared by Indigenous lawyer and businesswoman Terri Janke, True Tracks will show you a better pathway to professionally engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by understanding ICIP Protocols. This is a unique workshop opportunity because as a practicing lawyer with over 20 years of experience in this area, Terri has a respect for the legalities of matters and presents a variety of case studies (the great, the token and the pear-shaped ugly despite the best intentions). Rewards and risks are considered, as the workshop presents a process for working with Indigenous peoples, policies, protocols, contractual clauses, implementation, mediation and dispute resolution.

Our True Tracks workshops in 2020 have been postponed until further notice. Thank you for your understanding during this time
