Icon Achieves Corporate Partner Excellence In Victorian Aboriginal Business Awards
February 13, 2024
Icon Group is thrilled to announce our receipt of the Corporate Partner Excellence Award at the Victorian Aboriginal Business Awards 2023.
This prestigious award highlights a Kinaway Chamber of Commerce Corporate Partner’s outstanding commitment to enhancing the capabilities of Indigenous businesses and generating opportunities that foster significant, long-lasting benefits for Indigenous communities.
In 2022, Icon Group proudly invested over $5 million in partnerships with Kinaway businesses across Victoria, from startups to well-established entities. This investment has led to the creation of hundreds of job opportunities for Indigenous individuals, a testament to our dedication to fostering inclusive growth and removing barriers to participation within our commercial and procurement operations.
Our efforts are deeply informed by meaningful engagement with the Aboriginal community, including consultations with local communities, Traditional Owners, Elders, and Indigenous business leaders. These interactions have been crucial in shaping initiatives that support our goal of promoting Indigenous procurement and ensuring it becomes an integral part of our project management approach. This strategic direction not only enriches our supply chain but also contributes significant value to the broader community.
We extend our congratulations to all the nominees of this awards. Being recognized among such a distinguished group of businesses, all committed to driving positive change within the industry, is an honor. Icon Group is motivated more than ever to continue these vital efforts into the next year and beyond, underlining our commitment to corporate partner excellence and the empowerment of Indigenous businesses.
