    Indigenous Australians are 13 times as likely as the non-indigenous to be unemployed. Wesfarmers, a huge retail holding company, is doing its part to rectify that. It employs about 4,000 indigenous people, and it partners with organizations focused on education and transition-to work opportunities for those communities; it also finances indigenous public-art projects.
