Okwaho Communications is pleased to announce the launch of the Okwaho Network — North America’s first social network for Indigenous business and economic development. The Okwaho Network is an exciting online Indigenous business community that reflects a diverse mix of Indigenous communities, businesses and peoples. The social network provides a powerful online platform for Okwaho Network members to connect, engage and collaborate on business and economic development opportunities.
The Okwaho Network has many impressive networking features, including Indigenous community pages, a dedicated Indigenous business directory, job board, groups, and document sharing. The Okwaho Network promotes Indigenous inclusivity and represents a commitment to improving business practices through knowledge sharing and through building equitable business relationships with non-Indigenous peoples.
Okwaho Communications Co-Founder and Managing Director, Shyra Barberstock said, “The Okwaho Network is an effective capacity building tool — the first of its kind dedicated to Indigenous economic development and business in North America. Something I must also mention is that the social network is free to join; we wanted to remove as many barriers as we could and make it accessible for all Indigenous peoples.”
The Okwaho Network also welcomes non-Indigenous business professionals from the public sector, private sector, and foreign sector to utilize the social network to share opportunities, improve Indigenous relations and promote partnerships and collaboration.
Co-Founder and Assistant Director, Rye Barberstock said, “The Okwaho Network offers a great opportunity to promote a company’s commitment to progressive Indigenous business relations and gives companies an interactive communications platform to engage with Indigenous communities and business professionals.”
First Nations entrepreneurs, Shyra Barberstock and Rye Barberstock, founded Okwaho Communications (http://www.okwaho.ca), parent company of the Okwaho Network, in 2013.
