2023 - 2025 RECONCILIATION ACTION PLAN LAUNCHED
WorkPac is proud to launch our third Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) continuing our Reconciliation journey. With the support of Hamish Griffin, CEO, and Rob O’Sullivan, RAP Working Group member, we came together in our Head Office on Turrbal Country and broadcasted nationally to all WorkPac locations. WorkPac employees were privileged to celebrate with a Welcome to Country and traditional dance performed by Jahmarley Dawson. An emerging Aboriginal leader, Jahmarley lives in Brisbane where he is linked to the Turrbal People through bloodline connection and kinship ties. We were also delighted to welcome Rebecca Burke, National Indigenous Engagement Manager from WES.jobs JobTrail to discuss the importance of developing strong relationships with Indigenous Australians.
Our RAP is a significant step in supporting reconciliation, gaining a deeper understanding of our sphere of influence and continuing to focus on developing and strengthening relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, engaging staff and stakeholders in reconciliation, and developing and piloting innovative strategies to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
To celebrate our continued commitment to reconciliation WorkPac have commissioned special Artwork by Indigenous-owned business Dalmarri. GINYHAR MIYAGAN – Strong Relationships. The artists Jason Douglas and Trevor Eastwood describe the artwork as a ‘Representation of the magnificent work WorkPac is doing in communities providing opportunities and building stronger, lasting relationships with First Nations People. The colours represent the vibrant countryside, while still valuing and respecting the culture of First Nations People. The many dots and circles are communities who benefit by the opportunities and support WorkPac help create.’
We are thrilled to share our RAP with our employees, stakeholders and partners and look forward to working together to make a positive impact in the communities we serve.
