First Nations Foundation shortlisted for three awards

First Nations Foundation has been shortlisted in three categories at the MyBusiness 2020 awards.

While there is no argument that 2020 has been a year of fundamental change across the world, it has also had some positive impacts. Showing how a work-from-home approach can actually work in business has been one, while accelerating the role of useful support technology into our lives has been another.

This week, we discovered the Foundation and our CEO, Phil Usher, have been nominated in a number of categories at the MyBusiness 2020 awards. We are thrilled at the news.

As a not-for-profit, and one that specifically relies on travel and face-to-face contact to run our national Big Super Day Out event, we needed to work hard and fast to find solutions to the challenges presented by COVID-19. That lead to the development of two new online resources by the Foundation – our culturally-appropriate superannuation education resource, indigenoussuper.com.au; and our tomorrowmoney.co site, which launched this week.

We are incredibly proud of our nomination, and we are even more proud that our CEO has – having only been in the role for less than 12 months – been recognised in a further two categories.

There are many challenges ahead both for the world and for our Foundation, but we have plans in place to continue our mission in improving the financial literacy of Indigenous Australians, however we need too.

The awards winners will be announced on December 4.
