DCA has established a new network to examine leading practice in building workplaces to make the most of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander talent. Open to all DCA members this event will explore developing a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and best practice in Indigenous employment.

The Building Workplace Capability for Indigenous Australia network, is run exclusively for DCA members, and is designed to: 

  • Profile leading practice in attraction, retention and promotion of Indigenous talent
  • Improve understanding of Indigenous cultures and issues
  • Build organisational capability in this area
  • Involve both Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to share information and build relationships. 

We hope you can join us for the first event which will explore developing a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and best practice in Indigenous employment.  

Guest speakers will include:

  • Darryl Monaghan, General Manager – RAPs Reconciliation Australia to discuss how these practical plans of action, built on relationships, respect and opportunities, can provide a framework for organisations to realise their visions for reconciliation
  • Liz Potter, Head of Indigenous Affairs, Lendlease to discuss the creation and implementation of their RAP plan, along with the benefits of employing and showcasing Indigenous talent
  • Amber Roberts, Adviser, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Social Justice Commissioner at Australian Human Rights Commission to discuss  the importance of such RAP’s and practical steps employers can make to advance and attract Indigenous talent.
