As part of the company’s ongoing efforts to
support the Indigenous community, GHD has sponsored the World
Indigenous Network Conference during Australia’s National
Hosted by the Australian Government, the Larrakia
Nation (the original people of Darwin) and partner countries, the
Conference provides an opportunity for Indigenous Peoples and local
community land and sea managers to come together, connect and share
stories and experiences.
The event aims to help build the foundations for an innovative
and enduring World Indigenous Network that strives towards greater
social, economic and environmental sustainability.
Peter Dunn, GHD’s Leader for Indigenous Services, says, “For us,
this conference provides GHD with the opportunity to open
communication with traditional owners and communities.
"This will allow us to better deliver our projects on their
lands, and listen to what is important to them when working on and
designing projects that impact their communities. In particular, we
hope to help provide infrastructure projects in Indigenous
communities into the future."
GHD has been involved in a number of other successful Indigenous
initiatives in recent times. The consulting company was recognised
at the 2013 Property Council of Australia Innovation Awards, where
non-profit organisation CareerTrackers, in association with GHD and
other property industry partners, won the Innovation Award for its
Indigenous Internship Program. Through this program, the company
has employed 13 Indigenous cadets to date. GHD also won the Consult
Australian Diversity Award for its Indigenous Action Plan in
