A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a strategy that enables organisations to make their contribution to a reconciled Australia. Building on three key concepts – Relationships, Respect, and Opportunities – corporate, not-for-profit and government groups can work to create social change and economic opportunities for Aboginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
The NSW Reconciliation Council works in partnership with Reconciliation Australia to help organisations develop meaningful and appropriate RAPs. Since 2006, more than 650 organisations have created a RAP, generating significant opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses and individuals. From educating employees, to attending Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander events, to setting Indigenous employments targets, there are countless ways in which organisations can work towards their vision for reconciliation.
You can read more about Reconciliation Action Plans and see RAPs developed by groups around the country at Reconciliation Australia’s RAP Hub. If you are interested in partnering with the NSW Reconciliation Council to develop a RAP for your organisation, please contact us at [email protected]
