Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan 2021-2023
Our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) confirms our commitment to the reconciliation journey Australia is on and identifies focus areas where we believe we can have a positive impact and achieve best outcomes.
Our Vision for the future of Australia is one where our nation is actively anti-racist, promotes equality and equity, celebrates diversity, and embraces unity between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the broader Australian community.
Our Organisational mission is to strengthen the communities in which we work by improving the social and economic wellbeing of all. Guided by the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, which sets out the minimum standards for the continued survival of and level of respect and wellbeing for Indigenous peoples, we aim to be an active participant in the reconciliation journey that Australia continues on as well as a role model for other mission-driven organisations.
In order for us to achieve this vision through our everyday business operations, we:
Commit to forging stronger relationships with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders and communities so that we can play a part in enhancing positive race relations.
Understand that there is no reconciliation without truth. We will not only strengthen our awareness internally of the unique value that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures have but also freely share this information with stakeholders and peers.
Aim to partner and work with community organisations that reflect our values and to strengthen the social, cultural, and economic wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Peoples through our work.
The Innovate RAP confirms our commitment to the reconciliation journey Australia is on and identifies a focus on respect, relationships, and opportunities as areas where we believe we can have a positive impact and achieve the best outcomes. Through this process, we will continue to reflect on our values, promote our shared experiences, and use our voice and position to drive the change we envision for the future.
Our Reconciliation Action Plan
As an organisation, Abt strives to improve the lives and economic wellbeing of all people worldwide and specifically Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples throughout Australia. Across the oceans and lands, we work together to make a social impact. The country’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander ancestors have shown us that a harmonious connectivity empowers us to gather and share knowledge and ideas to achieve our common purpose. Abt is a socially conscious and mission-driven business with a long-term commitment to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and our Innovate RAP will guide us to achieve this.
