First Nations Strategy

We’re committed to embedding cultural values within the workplace, and working in partnership with First Nations peoples and communities Australia-wide. 

Our strategy

Developed in collaboration with Ngurra Advisory, Sharesies’ First Nations Strategy is our commitment to walking with First Nations people to create financial empowerment for everyone. 

The strategy provides a structured approach to how we’ll contribute to reconciliation, and sets a pathway to achieving our vision of improving wealth equality for Australia’s First Nations people and communities.

Our focus areas

Our First Nations Strategy aims to strengthen engagement activities across the business, driven by five focus areas.

  • Financial empowerment

    We believe in breaking down barriers and giving First Nations people the confidence and control to invest and develop their wealth.

  • Culture

    We recognise the importance of First Nations culture, history, and achievements.

  • Learning and teaching

    We’ll ensure that First Nations people have access to culturally-appropriate learning and education materials. 

  • First Nations employment

    We’re committed to closing the gap on First Nations employment and creating opportunities for First Nations people.

  • Community relationships

    We’re dedicated to building strong, mutually beneficial relationships that create opportunities and empower First Nations people, communities, and staff.
