Australian innovator and social entrepreneur Julie-ann Lambourne shared her experience in developing social entrepreneurships with innovation communities in Bali on Thursday.

Lambourne, who is actively working on projects to empower indigenous women in Australia, participated in a full-day program at Ke{m}Bali Innovation Hub in Seminyak by holding an inspirational talk for university students, which was followed by a panel discussion titled Digital Innovation for Social Impact.

Lambourne explained that indigenous communities in Australia had a patriarchy system, which applied a principle of “man at the top”.

“Usually, it’s the women who are doing all work in the community. So, [through the program] a lot of people can start to stand up, starting businesses to raise their life."

Part of the event was also a workshop for the local women in leadership communities on employment opportunities using virtual reality.

The event was held by the Australian Consulate General to celebrate the National Aboriginal and Islanders Day Observance Committee (NAIDOC) Week, a time when Australians celebrate the culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Lambourne also shared her experiences of celebrating NAIDOC Week in Jakarta and Surabaya.

Australian Consul Drew Boekel said the digital sector was a growing area of cooperation between Australia and Indonesia. Earlier this year, the Australian and Indonesian governments held the first Indonesia-Australia Digital Forum, which brought together digital stakeholders from both countries. 

“Ms. Lambourne’s visit builds on the success of the Indonesia-Australia Digital Forum. Her work exemplifies the power of digital technology and innovation to address inequality.” (ebf)
