Reconciliation in our organisation

At its heart, reconciliation is about strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, for the benefit of all Australians.

Reconciliation in our organisation

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Owners of the lands and waterways on which we live and work and recognise their continuing significance and connection to Country. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.

We honour the stories, traditions and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and commit to building a brighter future together.

Our vision and commitment

Our vision is to enable a more just and equitable future for all Australians through partnering with First Nations peoples and businesses to support a society where we can prosper together. 

We acknowledge that this requires systemic change, both within our organisation and broader society. Our vision is based on the principles of respect, humility, and a willingness to learn and grow. We are committed to listening to and learning from First Nations’ voices, whilst also taking concrete actions towards reconciliation, such as promoting understanding and awareness of First Nations’ histories and cultures.

At the core of our vision is a commitment to address the historic and ongoing injustices experienced by First Nations peoples.

Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) lays the foundation for relationships, respect, and opportunities for First Nations communities and is a valuable tool for us to make a positive difference in the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, by serving as a framework to guide our efforts.  

Following the implementation of Reflect RAP in 2022-23, the broader organisation is continuing this journey of reconciliation in tangible ways, such as procuring goods and services from verified Supply Nation businesses. 

The RAP is governed by the Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group (RWG), who are working to bring our plan to life and lead the way for all our employees to be involved. A key action of the RWG is to actively monitor RAP development and implementation of actions, track progress and submit reporting.
