ICC Sydney staff boost reconciliation efforts at City2Surf

Share this story

ICC Sydney staff have raised thousands for one of the venue’s Indigenous partner organisations by running in last weekend’s City2Surf.

Twenty ICC Sydney staff took part in the world’s largest fun run, between Sydney’s city centre and Bondi Beach and raised over $6,000 for the KARI Foundation.

The foundation supports Aboriginal peoples all over Australia while also helping corporates and Australia as a whole reach true reconciliation.

“Demonstrating our commitment to reconciliation, this was a powerful opportunity to help make a tangible difference in the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples who KARI works tirelessly to uplift,” said ICC Sydney’s CEO Geoff Donaghy.

“ICC Sydney’s team members benefited too and were able to connect with peers from across the business while prioritising their health and wellbeing in this fun setting.”

KARI’s chief commercial officer, Cain Slater, said the efforts of the ICC Sydney team for KARI were greatly appreciated.

“It was great to see so many ICC Sydney team members join forces with KARI in this year’s City2Surf, running shoulder to shoulder with us in solidarity as we work towards reconciliation together,” he said.

“We have so much heartfelt gratitude for ICC Sydney’s continuous support and dedication to KARI. Their unwavering commitment and enthusiasm for our cause truly make ICC Sydney a champion in every sense of the word.”

The convention centre released its second Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) in March last year, committing to, amongst other things, engaging stakeholders with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures through the venue’s industry-leading legacy program and building cultural competency in its staff. ICC Sydney introduced monthly yarning circles for staff last month, which will also be extended to industry and delegates, which delivers on both these RAP commitments.
