KARI CEO Casey Ralph said:
We are excited to have been invited to both the Sydney and Western Sydney Chambers.
KARI now has a place alongside the leading Sydney and Western Sydney Business helping to guild government as well as public policies. KARI can also ensure Aboriginal Australia has a voice for the design of our connection, productive and liveable cities.
The Sydney and Western Sydney Business Chamber is a leading advocate for Sydney as a competitive and liveable global city. The Chamber has policies focused on:
- Reforming Sydney’s local governance; urban renewal and planning reform
- Recycling state assets to fund new transport and infrastructure projects
- Supporting the evolution of Sydney as a leading service economy. This is done with a strong reputation in the arts, tourism as well as for international education.
Headed by Patricia Forsythe as Executive Director, the Sydney Business Chamber is a key player in shaping government policy and has worked hard to enhance Sydney as a city that attracts global investment as well as attract global talent.
To be the first indigenous organisation invited to join the Sydney and Western Sydney Chambers is a privilege. We hope this inspires and breaks down barriers for indigenous youth to achieve as well as be a connection for members with Aboriginal Australia.
“Our involvement in with corporate Australia is having a measurable and direct impact on the positive outcomes for the Indigenous community. We deliver shared benefit for our partners which allows for a safe, supported and inclusive journey into Aboriginal Australia”. Said Cain Slater – KARI Foundation.
KARI strives to offer a continuum of award-winning services. These services begin with community engagement. Our work together is alleviating disadvantage in Aboriginal communities. KARI also supports the positive contribution Aboriginal people make to the Australian community.
