Relationships

At IAG, we are constantly challenging ourselves to go beyond what we already know, to imagine a future world that is safer, stronger and more confident for all people. To build a future where our Indigenous communities are empowered, it is essential that we build strong relationships which have at their very heart, mutual respect so that we can share our experiences and grow together.
