During the National Reconciliation Week in May, we launched our inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan, which marks the beginning of our journey in supporting the social and economic prosperity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Our Reconciliation Action Plan provides the foundation to strengthen relationships, deepen our respect for our First People’s rich history, cultures and achievements, and promote sustainable opportunities within our sphere of influence. It also supports our aspirations to improve the cultural diversity of our organisation.
This year we established employment pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In partnership with CareerTrackers we placed two undergraduates in our intern program, and worked with a specialist agency to place three Indigenous candidates into roles within our Insurance business. Expanding this program forms an important part of our Reconciliation Action Plan.
