Jawun champions indigenous empowerment led by indigenous people for indigenous people. Working with indigenous leaders, organisations and communities, Jawun facilitates long term partnerships between corporates, government and indigenous Australia. The vision and aspiration for lasting, material and measurable change is led by indigenous partners with corporate and government partners providing skills and knowledge to assist place based capacity building.
Since its inception 20 years ago, Jawun has facilitated more than 3,500 corporate and government employees from the banking, management consulting, resources, insurance and public sectors live and work in Indigenous communities in 11 regions across the country, transferring skills and knowledge to accelerate community initiatives and enterprises. Together this represents 17,000 weeks of work.
Jawun also initiates leadership development through its Emerging Leaders’ Program for young indigenous leaders, a reverse secondment program for indigenous leaders in corporates and the Stories of Female Leadership, a network of over 200 women.
In addition, Jawun helps drive important Indigenous-led reforms across areas including education, housing, money management, employment and welfare. One of Jawun’s most significant contributions has been the support of the Empowered Communities movement, which exists to close the gap on disadvantage and rebalance the relationship between Indigenous communities and government.
