At Grace, we recognise the value of a diverse supply chain to drive innovation and flexibility within our organisation. We also believe that by ensuring that our procurement decisions include Indigenous businesses, we can contribute to greater economic empowerment of First Australians and contribute to ‘closing the gap’.
We have recently acquired membership with Supply Nation to reinforce our commitment to diversity, both within our workforce and our procurement processes.
Grace has a history of initiatives designed to help close the gap for Australia’s Indigenous peoples and communities. These initiatives include:
- Internal Indigenous procurement targets
- Working with Reconciliation Australia to develop a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)
- Increasing Indigenous employment
Our membership provides opportunities for more of our staff to be involved in initiatives designed to promote greater inclusion of Indigenous people.
Supply Nation connects its members to Indigenous suppliers, and by incorporating Indigenous owned businesses into the supply chain of Australian companies and government agencies, Supply Nation aims to to build a vibrant and prosperous Indigenous business sector.
Supply Nation’s mission is to facilitate, encourage and promote business between corporate Australia and Government agencies and Indigenous owned businesses.
Supply Nation Chief Executive Officer, Laura Berry, said “we are delighted to welcome Grace Worldwide (Australia) Pty Ltd into the Supply Nation program and look forward to working with them to develop their supplier diversity footprint in Australia.”
