Bring on Supplier Diversity September

1 September 2022

As an Indigenous-led consultancy and a Supply Nation Certified Supplier, Murawin are strong supporters of Supplier Diversity September. This is a month-long initiative that Supply Nation holds annually to promote the benefits of supplier diversity and to showcase the range of First Nation businesses.

Murawin’s CEO, Carol Vale shared, “This is a great initiative that encourages a sector-wide conversation around the benefits of supplier diversity, and how organisations, big and small, can better engage to build a stronger, more sustainable Indigenous business sector. Expanding our sector can bring significant economic and social value to our local, domestic, and indeed, international economies,” she said.

This year, Murawin will be highlighting a number of the deadly First Nations businesses that we’ve collaborated with in 2022 through series of Social Media Shout Outs!

From large corporations to small businesses, each of these Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander entrepreneurs are leading practitioners who, like Murawin, are passionate about building a prosperous, vibrant and sustainable Indigenous business sector.

Keep an eye on our Facebook and LinkedIn pages for our Social Media Shout Outs or view the full list on our website (below).
