Everyone should have the opportunity to shine their light on the world. At the GOGO Foundation, we believe that if we can create safe, loving, enriching and brave spaces of belonging for people to grow, to be whole and to thrive, then we are doing our bit to create a safer, inclusive and more humane world for all.
Our mission is to foster equity in society by using our skills, networks, partnerships, financial mechanisms, voice, advocacy, programs, events and intuition to challenge, dismantle, prevent and remove disadvantage and marginalisation to bring about equity, inclusion, agency and full community participation for all people, but in particular women and non-binary people.
The Inclusive Work Program is a 9 week person-centred curated program that includes teaches wellbeing skills, foundational work-skills, provides work immersions and mentoring and is designed to create targeted pathways to employment for women and non-binary people facing complex barriers to employment.
These barriers can include trauma, experience of family and domestic violence, anxiety, depression, social isolation, and primary caring responsibilities.
The course is held during school terms and within school hours. All ages and diversity welcome.
"The opportunity to come together as a group and the regularity this involved. Whilst our ‘issues’ may have been different, there were the common threads of marginalisation & detachment from the paid workplace that allowed us to share openly and build strong levels of trust & rapport between us."
