1.2.3 CROSS-SECTOR PARTNERSHIPS DELIVER EFFECTIVE PROBLEM SOLVING
AND SUSTAINABLE OUTCOMES
Social problems are generally complex andmultifaceted,
therefore solving these issues requires the input of a
range of sectors with varied expertise and experience.
Jawun facilitates cross-sector partnerships among
Indigenous, corporate, government and philanthropic
organisations to build effective problem solving, foster
collaboration and deliver outcomes greater than the
sum of their parts.
A cross-sector approach nurtures thinking, which
leverages each sector’s unique advantages, augmenting
outcomes to achievemore than could be accomplished
individually. Jawun brokers support from corporate
and government agencies and the philanthropic sector,
to provide Indigenous organisations with the skilled
resourcing and contacts to tackle complex problems and
craft innovative approaches to entrenched challenges.
Exhibit 1 on page 10 illustrates how Jawun leveraged
cross-sector support to incubate a new approach to
Indigenous employment in Shepparton.
