Indigenous Services Australia (ISA) has teamed with Regency Foods Australia, who specialise in supplying quality meat and small-goods across Australia.
ISA provides specialised consulting, development and training services to corporate and community organisations throughout Australia.
It was during a cultural diversity weekend with the Regency Foods Australia team recently that the partnership between ISA and Regency was formalised. The Regency team learned about Aboriginal Australia’s story, the significance of the land and dreamtime beliefs for Aboriginal people and the importance of communication, trust and loyalty. Together both groups bring together Western and Aboriginal approaches to conducting business, essentially combining the world’s oldest living culture with the operational expertise of a state-wide food services organisation.
This unique and complementary partnership will deliver tremendous value to Regency Foods Australia’s existing and future clients, as well as to the regions in which they operate, and ultimately assist Aboriginal and non- Aboriginal staff, partners, customers, suppliers and community members to work and live better together.
While the partnership may be new, the values and common beliefs it is based upon are traditional, proven and timeless. We as groups are passionate about helping people achieve goals, share knowledge and build lasting relationships. We believe in balance, encouragement and equality and are focused on taking learning from the past to build a better future. We are committed to building a relationship based on mutual respect, trust, understanding and through the pursuit of conciliation (that is, resolving any differences openly and together) among ourselves, our respective clients, partners, other organisations and community members.
Aboriginal Australia is constantly questioned as to why our people, the First Australians, have an emotional mindset that others struggle to understand.
The ‘Corporate World’ is endeavouring to learn and engage with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, but the real challenge will be in developing associations that are more meaningful and longer-term.
“It’s not just about listening, it’s about truly Feeling the stories”
ISA urge the world to take this opportunity to listen, question, FEEL, and engage in a program that has been created to deliver a powerful experience like no other.
FEEL showcases 4 or 5 speakers with Aboriginal and other cultural backgrounds who will give an upfront and honest insight into their personal achievements and aspirations. These are genuine human beings who have followed our mantra, and achieved extraordinary outcomes for others.
The event also takes in Aboriginal musical performances, Australian native cuisine and closes with a dynamic Q and A session. The FEEL Speakers Program will be available from early 2018. Book now to ensure you don’t miss out.
