"My desire was to gain insight into the Cape York agenda, and to engage and understand the issues facing the Aboriginal community in Australia, and to play a small part in improving the peoples lives in any way that I could. I achieved these objectives, and so much more. A thoroughly meaningful and memorable experience that has doubtless enriched my personal and professional life. It has whetted my appetite to learn more and help wherever I can in the Cape."

"Working with IEP for our employee volunteering program in Cape York has been an extremely positive experience for IBM and for our employees. The depth of experience that the IEP organisation has in working with Indigenous communities has made our participation not only easy but also highly valued by our employees. We hope to expand our future commitment to this outstanding program."

Andrew Hocking, IBM

"NAB's partnership with IEP gives our employees a unique opportunity to work with Indigenous communities and to make a difference. It's a partnership - the indigenous community benefits and our employees benefit."

Tim O'Leary, NAB

Philanthropic Organisations

"Colonial Foundation is proud to support Indigenous Enterprise Partnerships. This support began in 2003 and arose from the demonstration of leverage that IEP successfully generates by utilising the capabilities of corporate and philanthropic Australia to tap into the determination of Indigenous people to regenerate their communities. Attacking what is probably the most challenging issue in Australia today, IEP, through its strong partnerships with Indigenous leaders, has demonstrated that it helps Indigenous people to build their capabilities and to enjoy a life of meaning and value. Through the use of skilled people from its corporate partners, IEP has assisted Indigenous people to access education and economic opportunities as well as bringing about health and social reform. The keys to IEP's successes are the partnerships with Indigenous people and the long-term relationships with corporate Australia."
