Page Background


Since 2001, Jawun has built a unique environment

for engagement and collaboration among its

Indigenous, corporate, government and

philanthropic partners. As Jawun’s partners

leverage these relationships, a rich story of

shared value has emerged.

The value created for corporate and government

partners is experienced at both the employee and

organisational level. Employees who participate

in Jawun secondments benefit both personally

and professionally from the experience, gaining

deeper awareness and understanding of

Indigenous culture and challenges, a broadening

of cultural perspectives, development in emotional

intelligence, and enhanced career growth.

Organisations experience value creation and return

on investment in the form of improved global

intercultural capability, people and leadership

development, enhanced organisational culture

and employer brand, and the delivery of corporate

social responsibility.

The influence of the Jawun model extends beyond

individuals and partner organisations as those

transformed by their experiences share their

learnings and insights about Indigenous Australia

with others, take action to redress Indigenous

disadvantage, or use their positions of authority

to influence public opinion or the cultures of

large organisations.

This story of shared value will continue in 2016,

when Jawun’s Learnings and Insights report will

focus on the impact of the Jawun program on

Indigenous organisations and communities.
