Even though we may be small, our operations and decisions can have a direct impact on our immediate (and extended) communities. So we strive, at all times, to enrich the community in which we operate.
It's been a real eye opener for me to have such transparency, openness and willingness to share internally, with our partners and clients.
I've pushed myself to share content to inspire others to think about the impact of their business.
We talk about our work a fair bit through our blog and on social media.
We don’t do it to brag (we’re far from perfect, anyway!), but because if sharing our journey inspires just one other individual or company to walk a slightly more ethical path, then that’s a brilliant result.
It’s also a great way to push our commitment to openness and transparency.
For us, community starts with our suppliers and partners.
Wherever possible, we use local (to us!) service providers and we do our best to work with businesses that are owned and run by under-represented groups in the business space.
We also do what we can to utilise and work with B Corps (and B Corp-aspirational) companies.
We’re proud to bank with Bank Australia – Australia’s leading responsible bank – for our business (and personal) banking, and use Verve Super for our superannuation.

Let’s take a look back at the year that was (before wrapping up with some of our goals and intention-setting for 2021). To keep things simple, we’ve broken this report up into six parts, that speak to six areas that were particularly important to us this part year:
We acknowledge Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and pay respect to their cultures and Elders past and present.
