Our mission is to create parity with and for Indigenous Australians, within one generation
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 all Australians deserve equal opportunity 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, Generation One work to bridge the employment gap through innovative thinking and partnering with communities.
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 not an option.
Each of our projects are measured on its impact towards our ultimate goal – achieving parity in one generation.
