Supplier Diversity September is a month-long virtual festival that Supply Nation holds annually to promote the benefits of supplier diversity and to showcase the range of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses in Australia. Supplier Diversity September encourages a sector-wide conversation around the benefits of supplier diversity, and how organisations are engaging to build a prosperous, vibrant and sustainable Indigenous business sector.
As part of the celebrations, Supply Nation will be showcasing certified suppliers on their social media channels and share success stories in their weekly newsletters to celebrate their achievements.
IBA has been a Supply Nation Member since 2010. In the last financial year we procured $7.7m from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses.
The Member Opportunity Board (MOB) is a dedicated online platform that allows Supply Nation Members such as IBA to promote current and upcoming procurement opportunities to Supply Nation supplier. This includes tenders, requests for quotes or proposals and expressions of interest. This information is also sent directly to Certified Suppliers (51%+ Indigenous owned) that provide goods and services relevant to your opportunity.
Supply Nation's Indigenous Business Directory has grown significantly over the last 5 years now with over 2,500 registered and certified Indigenous businesses. This directory is free to use with a number of search categories available, including a NAIDOC specific category for related goods and services.
