What is the Business Partnerships Platform?
The Business Partnerships Platform supports partnerships between the Australian Government and inclusive businesses to create lasting social impact
Gender and social inclusion
The BPP champions gender equality and social inclusion. The BPP works with partners to strengthen their approach to women’s economic empowerment and lift barriers for women to succeed as leaders, employees and as suppliers in the value chain. Engaging the private sector as champions for gender equality and social inclusion is a critical step on the path towards equal economic opportunity and participation for all. While governments have a role to play in creating policies which encourage inclusive economies, in most countries, private businesses are the largest employers and provide a wide variety of goods and services to communities.
How We Partner
The partnership model is the key defining feature of the BPP.
BPP partnerships require partners to invest resources and capital alongside DFAT in pursuit of the BPP and partnership goals.
Partnerships are driven by shared priorities, open communication, accountability, sharing of risks and benefits, and recognising and responding to each other’s strengths to add value in their collaboration.
