We are striving to close the gap in education outcomes between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
The fastest way to create parity is through meaningful and sustainable employment opportunities – jobs that empower people to take charge of their own lives and create hope. We support employment outcomes through partnerships that focus on training, education, and social policy reform.
We work with partners to secure employment outcomes for Indigenous Australians through our ‘demand-led’ training approach, as well as advocacy for employment and social policy reform. The demand-led approach focuses on securing employment for candidates prior to training, coordinating job-ready development programs to help candidates, and linking service provider payments to long-term outcomes.
We believe that everyone deserves opportunities to reach their full potential. We should all have an equal shot at receiving an education, entering training, and securing meaningful employment. With the tremendous disparity that exists between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians, many people miss out on this ‘equal shot’.
Creating parity in our generation is an audacious, challenging, and at times overwhelming goal, but we strive for it because allowing this disparity to continue is just not an option.
By preparing young people with the skills and training necessary to succeed in the future, and partnering individuals with skilled mentors to elevate their thinking, we believe we can spark change.
Creating parity for Indigenous Australians is a challenge that requires significant diligence and tenacity. Each of our projects is measured on its impact toward our ultimate goal – achieving parity in one generation.
We believe in providing support and opportunities at every career stage to encourage development and ensure success.
