Indigenous Works - Building prosperous partnerships
In March 2017, a forum of CEO’s from Indigenous Economic Development Corporations (IEDC’s) were invited by Indigenous Works to share insights and perspectives about current issues and identify the opportunities that exists for their organizations over the near and medium term.
This past winter, interviews were conducted to gather input on issues, opportunities and challenges. There were more than 40 key issues that were categorized into six themes - Capacity and Productivity, Leverage, Growth and Diversification, Legacy, Public Policy & Positioning.
The indigenous development corporations each have different goals, portfolios, governance structures, experience and scales. Highlights from the forum included: corporate governance, strategic planning and training.
We are proud that Gitxsan Development Corporation was one of the indigenous economic development corporations who was invited to and contributed to the IEDC report and fortunate to learn from other successful development corporations.
