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.
