Our Story

Worldview was founded in 2018 with a mission to overcome intergenerational disadvantage for First Nations people through holistic life and employment programs. We believe that by understanding, respecting and integrating multiple worldviews we make better decisions and have greater success in creating social outcomes. To achieve our goals, we draw from every area of society, particularly from Elders and experts in the Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander community.  We respect all worldviews in designing and implementing ways to help each other reach our full potential.

Initially established in Canberra, Cofounders Kurt Gruber and Jamie Miller sought to create a solution that directly answers the call of the nation’s National Agreement to Close the Gap, with a focus on power sharing through a leadership team which includes both non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal heritage, coinciding with creating employment opportunities for young Aboriginal men. 

WV Technologies was created as the social enterprise arm of Worldview. WV Technologies is the only Indigenous social enterprise that provides highly secure, industry leading Information Technology lifecycle services nationally. We combine Indigenous employment, with the highest compliancy standards for secure data decommissioning and eWaste management solutions. WV Technologies provides an end-to-end service that enables government and business across the country to recycle their technology infrastructure responsibly, ensuring this is decommissioned at the highest possible security standard; and in addition, we provide this service as an indigenous social enterprise, fulfilling indigenous procurement targets, generating Indigenous employment opportunities and social impact.

Worldview Foundation, creates brighter futures for Indigenous Australians through community-led and culturally sensitive solutions. We deliver programs that break down employment barriers, create better life opportunities to maximise impact and create real, measurable, and sustainable change to cyclical disadvantage and help close the gap.

Worldview Pathways is a profit-for-purpose, majority Indigenous-owned social enterprise providing Indigenous employment placement and transitional labour hire into the construction, landscaping, facility management, hospitality, and Information Communications Technology industries.

The concept of worldview

a note from our co-founders

noun. /ˌwɜːld ˈvjuː/ /ˌwɜːrld ˈvjuː/


In today’s society, there is a tendency to only understand and live by one particular Worldview, often resulting in other conceptions of the world being disregarded or marginalised. However by integrating multiple Worldviews we build stronger bridges and create a more holistic approach to life.

For example, the standard definition of health in Western medicine is defined as “the state of being free from illness or injury” which is very focused on the individual.

Contrast this with Aboriginal health, which has been defined by some as meaning “not just the physical well-being of an individual but refers to the social, emotional and cultural well-being of the whole Community
in which each individual is able to achieve their full potential as a human being thereby bringing about the total well-being of their Community.”

We seek to embrace a wide range of worldviews and beliefs which benefits people, the community and the planet. Because of this, we draw heavily from every area of society, particularly from Elders and experts in the Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander community, in designing and implementing ways to help each other reach our full potential.
