What is the Business Partnerships Platform?
We support partnerships between the Australian Government and inclusive and sustainable businesses to create a lasting social and environmental impact
Gender and social inclusion
We work with our partners to counter the regressive effect of the pandemic on gender equality. COVID-19 continues to affect lives and livelihoods around the world, with a significant impact on women. Women’s work has proven more vulnerable in the pandemic with the burden of unpaid care keeping women out of work. Job losses in service sector have disproportionately impacted women. We select partners on their ability to champion gender equality and social inclusion and work with them to strengthen their approach to women’s economic empowerment and to support women to succeed as leaders, employees and as suppliers in the value chain and drive a fair recovery from COVID-19.
How We Partner
The partnership model is the key defining feature of the BPP.
Our partnerships require partners to invest resources and capital alongside the Australian Government in pursuit the 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.
