Celebrating Indigenous Business Month at Hub Australia

October marks Indigenous Business Month, a time to recognise and promote the talent of First Nations businesses and entrepreneurs. To celebrate, we reached out to some of our First Nations-led business members to find out more about what they do.

What are you working on at the moment that is making you proud?

What is one thing you wish people knew about First Nations-led businesses?

How passionate we are to make things work with little to no financial backing.

Tell us a bit about what you do.

We are a legal and consulting practice focused on working with organisations, businesses and individuals to create positive outcomes for women and Indigenous peoples.

What are you working on at the moment that is making you proud?

At the moment, we are representing Indigenous women in resolving race based discrimination and sexual harassment matters against their employers. At the same time, we are working with organisations to look at how they can improve their response to these issues using transformative mediation, policy and organisational culture programs. This has the potential to create long-lasting, systematic change.

What is one thing you wish people knew about First Nations-led businesses?

First-Nations-led businesses and entrepreneurs can be incredibly innovative, resilient and relationship driven, across all industries and sectors.

How are you celebrating Indigenous Business Month this year?

This Indigenous Business Month, we are busy supporting our First Nations business clients with their strategies and projects. We are planning on reviewing our list of partners and suppliers to see if we can add some more First Nations-led, and ideally, First Nations women-led businesses.
