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.
We listen carefully to our community, partners, participants and our intuition.
We aim to bring the margin to the centre in all we do.
We value transparency, giving and receiving, and shared outcomes driven by impact
We work with what our community has in abundance.
Inclusive Work Program is a 10 week curated program that includes wellbeing, foundational work-skills training, mentoring and work immersions and is designed to create targeted pathways to employment for women and non-binary people facing complex barriers to employment.
These barriers can include experience of family and domestic violence, poor mental health, social isolation and primary caring responsibilities.
"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."
