Supporting Indigenous Businesses in Construction
Gamuda prides itself on its commitment to working with Aboriginal businesses, helping to contribute to economic and social growth within Aboriginal communities. We do this by supporting businesses during pre- and post-contract awards, as well as looking for bespoke opportunities to grow and promote Aboriginal businesses within our projects.
Recently, we have shown our support to two Aboriginal businesses by sponsoring them and their staff to attend Supply Nation Australia’s, Supply Connect Tradeshow. By doing so, we gave these businesses the opportunity to showcase themselves to a wider audience and direct their resources to market their business whilst at the show.
Gamuda Australia’s Aboriginal Programs and Participation Manager Matthew Murphy couldn’t be happier with the success of Aboriginal engagement and participation across Gamuda’s projects. Murphy remarked, “We have made such huge progress over the past two years. I look forward to continuing to support Aboriginal businesses in unique ways, by not only procuring their services but also showcasing their success to the industry”.
In celebration of Indigenous Business Month, we are taking the opportunity to shine a light on these remarkable Aboriginal businesses that are not only doing great things but are using their platform to give back to the Aboriginal Community.
