National Close the Gap Day

Broadspectrum’s General Manager for Business Community Investment, Neil Birtchnell and Indigenous Development Manager, Llewellyn Williams were invited to the Prime Minister’s ‘Closing the Gap’ address to Federal Parliament. Formalities began with a morning tea hosted by the Business Council of Australia, where Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and the Honourable Nigel Scullion, Minister for Indigenous Affairs expressed the important role corporate Australia plays in closing the gap. Morning tea was followed by the Prime Minister’s official address on the 2018 Closing the Gap Report to Parliament.

As one of Australia’s leading companies Broadspectrum is committed to reconciliation and improving the imbalance between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Australia. We have developed procurement practices that better support Indigenous businesses and continue to strengthen the opportunities for Indigenous People.
