Strengthening First Nations Workforce and Business – Breakfast Event

Last Friday CheckUP in collaboration with Everywhen Workforce hosted Strengthening First Nations Workforce and Business – Breakfast Event. Everywhen is an Aboriginal owned and led organisation created to unite Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australia for enduring change.

Held during Indigenous Business Month the event was well-attended, providing an opportunity for key leaders and businesses to connect with each other to discuss the key enablers to investment, growth and capacity building.

Indigenous Business Month occurs annually during October, this year’s theme To Gather, Together, called upon First Nations business owners and their non-Indigenous allies, to gather, online and in community, to inspire the next generation of First Nations business leaders.

Workforce development and growth featured as a key theme throughout the day, event hosts Selena King, Executive Director of Everywhen Workforce and Andy Legg, CheckUP’s Industry Workforce Advisor for First Nations Health Care and Social Assistance, discussed current First Nations workforce trends before touching on sustainable ways to grow and support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Workforces.

We then heard from our panel of industry leaders Luke Jeffery, Founder and Managing Director of Everywhen Group, Jesse Green, Owner and Managing Director of Yilay and Andrew Niven, Indigenous Partnerships Manager of Queensland Investment Corporation (QIC), resulting in an engaging and insightful discussion around the key issues facing First Nations Businesses.

Nyaree Mewett, CheckUP’s General Manager – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health, described the event as being “amazing to see people from various industries come together to hear from industry leaders of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent who are redefining how we approach workforce and how assisting an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander business supports our people’s right to self-determination and community.”
