Jeremy Donovan is proud to be the Spokesperson for National Campaign 'GenerationOne'
GenerationOne is a movement for all Australians – Indigenous and non-Indigenous. It is a non-partisan movement and will listen to any and all contributions that can help break the poverty traps, in our generation.
GenerationOne provides the opportunity for those who are already active to do more, and for those who have never participated in a campaign to play a simple role in achieving real change. It collaborates and promotes any other organisation that is doing good work in the fields of education, training, mentoring and employment.
GenerationOne is a not-for-profit organisation that was founded by Andrew and Nicola Forrest as a movement for change. Financial support was provided to create a movement that would show the importance of education, training, mentoring and employment as the best means for ending the disparity between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians. The Foundation Supporters were the Forests, James Packer and Kerry Stokes with further significant support from the Lowy and Fox families. Almost all have been active in Indigenous employment already, but realise that real change only comes from all Australians getting involved.
GenerationOne works closely with our sister organisations – Australian Employment Covenant (AEC) which aims to gain commitments of 50,000 jobs for Indigenous Australians and the P-Plate program which links those AEC commitments with school children.
