About the IDX Initiative

What happens when digital technology is embraced by the world’s oldest living culture? We believe the answer is Indigenous Digital Excellence (IDX).

The IDX Initiative is an exciting $5 million partnership between the National Centre of Indigenous Excellence (NCIE) and the Telstra Foundation to unlock the opportunities the digital world can provide Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The IDX Initiative focuses on building the digital skills of Indigenous entrepreneurs, students and communities through workshops, education and hands-on training and support. It also aims to create opportunities for improving the employment, wellbeing, health, education, cultural and environmental outcomes for all Indigenous people and their communities through the use of digital technology.
