Building Workplace Capability for Indigenous Australia
Are you ready to W-RAP your head around a Reconciliation Action Plan?
While many DCA members are committed to developing respectful relationships with, and meaningful opportunities for, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, some have yet to develop a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and others are keen to move their RAP to the next level.
At our Building Workplace Capability for Indigenous Australia network, Andrea Kelly, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Reconciliation Australia shared with DCA members the process of developing and progressing a RAP.
We invited four DCA members who are each at a different level of the RAP program to talk about their experiences. We heard from:
- Robyn Freer, National Corporate Business Manager, 3M Australia who shared her organisation's Reflect RAP
- Tom Moloney, Business Development Manager, HESTA talked about their Innovate RAP
- Lesley Power, Corporate Council Communications and the Arts, SBS RAP Committee talked about their Stretch RAP
- Brooke Massender, Global Head of Pro Bono at Herbert Smith Freehills outlined their Elevate RAP.

- Profile leading practice in attraction, retention and promotion of Indigenous talent
- Improve understanding of Indigenous cultures and issues
- Build organisational capability in this area
