The Dilin Duwa Centre for Indigenous Business Leadership is committed to the pursuit of equity for Australia’s First Nations people in the economic life of our country.

In the Woi Wurrung language of the Wurundjeri people on whose land our Centre is established, "Dilin Duwa" means everlasting flow. It signifies the convergence of our three activity streams into a centre of impact.

Under the cultural and strategic guidance of an Indigenous Advisory Group, Dilin Duwa is a collaboration between Melbourne Business School and the University of Melbourne’s Faculty of Business and Economics.

Combining the teaching strength, research acumen and business networks of our institutions, we ensure that our programs meet the needs of the community whom we serve.
