Empowering Indigenous Women Entrepreneurs: First Nation Women in Business Series Continues in Townsville

As part of the ongoing Indigenous Business Month, initiated by the Queensland Government's Department of Treaty, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships, Communities, and the Arts, Law lecturer Karnika Bansal presented on Monday, 16th October. The event marked a significant session in the First Nation Women in Business Series, where Karnika delivered an insightful workshop titled 'Understanding Intellectual Property, Trademarks & Designs.'

The workshop aimed to provide participants with a foundational understanding of Intellectual Property (IP) law, a crucial aspect for entrepreneurs in safeguarding their creations and managing various forms of intellectual assets. Covering key areas such as copyrights, trademarks and designs, the session equipped attendees with valuable knowledge to navigate the complex landscape of IP law effectively.

Karnika's expertise and the tailored content of the workshop addressed the specific needs of Indigenous women in business, offering practical insights into protecting their intellectual creations. The First Nation Women in Business Series serves as a dynamic platform for education and empowerment, contributing to the broader goal of fostering sustainable and successful Indigenous businesses.

This workshop not only marked a key moment in the ongoing Indigenous Business Month but also highlighted the commitment of the Queensland Government and JCU to supporting and uplifting Indigenous women entrepreneurs in their business endeavours. The series stands as a testament to the importance of knowledge-sharing and skill-building in nurturing a thriving business community among Indigenous women.
