According to the latest government employment study, the Indigenous unemployment rate is currently 21%, an increase of 4.3 percentage points since 2008, and is 4 times the current non-Indigenous unemployment rate of 5%. Through disempowerment and lack of opportunity, the Indigenous community in Australia has the highest rate of suicide of any community in the world.
By empowering and supporting Indigenous entrepreneurs and professionals we could help re-shape these statistics and our communities.
eMentoring is an online mentoring platform supporting Indigenous entrepreneurs and professionals by connecting them with industry experts (like yourself) to receive valuable mentoring, which will help them progress in their careers and break the poverty cycle.
eMentoring is an initiative of Barayamal, Australia's Indigenous Business Accelerator - now know as a world leader in Indigenous Entrepreneurship.
How it works
Our Mentors support motivated Indigenous Australians to achieve their dreams and create a better world for all who live in it. Furthermore, you will be a part of an action-orientated network of highly skilled and experienced volunteers (entrepreneurs, leaders, innovators and academics) that are making a real and meaningful difference in Australia.
