Suncorp launches new Reconciliation Action Plan this NAIDOC Week
Suncorp is proud to launch its second Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) today to support social and economic prosperity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Suncorp’s RAP 2020–22 has been endorsed by Reconciliation Australia and has been recognised as an ‘Innovate’ RAP, which acknowledges that we’ve moved from the scoping to implementation phase.
Suncorp’s Executive General Manager Consumer Distribution, Banking & Wealth, Chris Fleming, has taken up the opportunity to be Suncorp’s RAP Champion for the next two years.
Chris said the RAP sets out our vision for reconciliation, which is centred on coming together to build a more inclusive, prosperous and resilient Australia – for all Australians.
“Our first RAP, launched in 2018, has given us a really solid foundation,” Mr Fleming said.
“Having spent time with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders, we’ve been able to develop a clearer vision for reconciliation and the role that Suncorp can play.
“For us, we believe our company can have the most impact by supporting financial, social and natural hazard resilience, while continuing to strengthen relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities over the coming two years.
“We’re proud to be embarking on this next phase.”
#Suncorp's vision for reconciliation
All Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to be empowered to participate in the economy, be included in the financial system and have the means to build financial, social and natural hazard resilience for themselves, their family and their community.
An important part of our Innovate RAP is engaging Suncorp people in our reconciliation journey and increasing our collective understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
To embrace NAIDOC Week this year, Suncorp is offering our people free virtual cultural tours in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne to help them learn more. Chris Fleming is also hosting an online panel discussion with speakers from First Nations Foundation, AFL and Reconciliation Australia for Suncorp employees.
