Insight Academy, in partnership with Hike Tribe, launched an initiative to improve the well-being of international students impacted by COVID-19 by reconnecting them with nature and the community. This was achieved through conducting group hikes across regional Victoria. These events were immediately booked out by enthusiastic students. WeHike was supported by Study Melbourne and the Victorian State Government.
In a partnership with Small Business Victoria, Insight Academy created and conducted a seven-part event series focused on promoting and supporting LGBTQIA+ people in business, including networking events, guest speakers and workshops. Through highlighting LGBTQIA+ entrepreneurs and their stories, we aimed to empower LGBTQIA+ persons and provide them with the skills and connections to pursue their careers.
Food Next Door is a co-operative organisation that matches under-utilised farmland with landless farmers to support small-scale regenerative farming, growing diverse crops & engaging people from diverse backgrounds to supply food to local households. Insight Academy collaborated with the co-op by giving full scholarships to two of the members of their community to support the growth of their business.
Thanks to Project Gen Z our Insight Academy team travelled to Cambodia to participate in workshops with other successful entrepreneurs to raise funds & teach entrepreneurial skills to students from Sunrise Cambodia, an orphanage run by Geraldine Cox. Insight Academy also gave a full scholarship to one of the students who nowadays continues her business studies at our Melbourne Campus.
