GenerationOne aims to tackle Indigenous youth unemployment

Date posted: 10 May 2012

Aboriginal leader Warren Mundine is set to lead GenerationOne's private sector campaign to increase Indigenous employment. Mr Mundine will, in June 2012, replace outgoing chief executive Tim Gartrell, who is taking up a role at Reconciliation Australia.

GenerationOne was founded by Andrew Forrest, chairman of Fortescue Metals Group and the Federal Government-supported Australian Employment Covenant (AEC). The non-for-profit organisation aims to tackle unemployment in Indigenous youth alongside the AEC.

The AEC's initial goal was to place 50,000 Indigenous people into jobs within two years, a target that has already been exceeded. A further 61,000 jobs have been promised, of which 10,000 jobs have so far been filled.
