Founded by Joseph Assaf in 1988, the Ethnic Business Awards are Australia’s longest running general business awards. The awards are widely respected as they promote inclusion and bring diverse groups of people together. The were established to recognise the achievement of migrants to Australia who worked hard and, despite the odds, achieved great success; and in doing so make a valuable contribution to Australian business and the community. It is the only business awards program that recognises Indigenous business contribution as well as that of migrants and highlights the positive impacts of multicultural Australia. Success becomes a powerful driving force for change and inspires others to dream and succeed. Award winners are powerful role models and change agents within their communities.
