Increasing self-determined futures for Indigenous peoples is the ‘north star’ for this framework. Indigenous ‘Self-determination’ might not be front of mind for all investors, but it is a path that many of our mob still seek after long periods of systemic and institutional oppression, even in contemporary Australia.
This is not just a national issue but also a global issue. Reducing inequalities is Goal 10 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It captures the importance of no-one being left behind. It is increasingly recognised that our dependence on achieving the other 16 SDGs will be determined by our ability to make significant progress with achieving greater levels of equality.
