Ngiyakai Yapung - ‘This Way Together’
Ngiyakai meaning ‘this way together’ tells the story of the Australian Institute of Company Directors and their commitment to excellence in governance.
Central to the artwork are three interconnected meeting circles, which hold great importance within the artwork. They depict the Australian Institute of Company Directors and reflect the organisations mission to make a positive impact on society and the economy through three key actions: Governance Education, Directors Development and Advocacy.
These three central gathering circles also represent stakeholders coming together around shared vision in closing the gap for Aboriginal people, highlighting the Australian Institute of Company Directors commitment towards reconciliation across the three key actions being Relationships, Respect and opportunities.
Encompassing the central imagery are 12 meeting circles, representing the AICD national board. Double coloured rings are reflective of their leadership role and their twofold aim to be key influencers in world leading governance and key players in achieving world-leading performance in governance principles.
Set upon a backdrop of country the organisation imagery radiates outward embracing our nation and all communities. This is highlighted through seven meeting circles, each displaying the symbol for people, holding a threefold meaning:
- The people symbols respectfully acknowledge Aboriginal peoples and communities across our nation, embraces all community and highlight that AICD members are the foundation of the organisation and pay tribute to all stakeholders upon the reconciliation journey with them.
- The seven meeting circles are reflective of AICD national footprint upon country across seven state and territory divisions.
- This symbolism, as one speak of respectful relationships, working together and the possibilities for reconciliation within AICDs reconciliation action plan across our nation.
This unique artwork is reflective of the Australian Institutes of Company Director, their leadership in building strong organisation through championing good governance and their commitment to contributing to closing the gap in our nation through respectful relationships leading to unique possibilities.Artwork Size: 1020 x 1020 mm
