We are collaborating with Indigitek to build career pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in technology, advertising and social media. Through events, ongoing support and Facebook Blueprint scholarships, we will support participants in their early or mid-career to improve their skills and access opportunities.
Reconciliation at Facebook
Facebook is committed to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities celebrate their culture, access education and embrace their economic potential. We have committed to publishing our first Reconciliation Action Plan in 2021.
Investing in First Nations creators
In partnership with Screen Australia supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social media creators in mentoring, training and content funding. The program aims to accelerate up to fifteen First Nations up-and-coming local talent and amplify diverse voices across the social media landscape and will involve training sessions and workshops covering product, creativity, safety and well-being, along with mentored guidance on digital production and social media strategy.
Celebrating National Reconciliation Week 2021
The theme of the 2021 National Reconciliation Week is “More than a word.” We will be celebrating National Reconciliation Week by building relationships with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander partners, participating in cultural education and promoting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices on Facebook and Instagram.

Building on our investments to date supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, we have committed to publishing a Reconciliation Action Plan in 2021, focussed on elevating opportunities to celebrate culture, build careers and create further opportunities for education and economic prosperity. Our Reconciliation Action Plan will be guided by an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Group.
