RECONCILIATION

OUR RECONCILIATION
VISION

Our vision is to continue to create opportunities within our business and sector that will lead to positive economic, social and education outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities across Australia.

We value, respect and celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, history and cultures and are committed to reconciliation. Throughout our reconciliation journey, we continually strive to influence organisational and industry-wide cultural change and encourage continued learning, understanding and sharing through respectful exchange.

Our vision for reconciliation is articulated through our commitment to:

  • Building strong and respectful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, communities and businesses;
  • Providing access to education and training for our staff to enhance their understanding and engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, cultures and history;
  • Designing opportunities that will increase the participation of, and ensure positive outcomes for, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and businesses in our organisation;
  • Collaborating with our industry partners to create lasting and meaningful change through shared industry-wide commitments;
  • Contributing to the national reconciliation dialogue and advocating for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

KEY PARTNERSHIPS

RECONCILIATION
ACTION PLAN (RAP)

Our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) for 2020–2021 reaffirms our commitment to building a workplace and shaping an industry where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledges, cultures and values are respected and celebrated.

Our RAP provides an important foundation for our actions, and ensures we continue to develop our existing relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, communities and organisations.

BGIS supports Uluru Statement from the Heart

BGIS is proud to support the Uluru Statement from the Heart, an open letter to all Australians that calls for the establishment of a First Nations Voice in the Constitution and a Makarrata Commission on agreement-making and truth-telling between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and governments. As Innovate RAP partners, we have a responsibility to demonstrate leadership in this important national conversation. We call upon our industry peers and fellow Australians to join us in voicing support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart. In the spirit of reconciliation, we look forward to continuing to work with Indigenous-owned businesses and not-for-profits, and standing with all Australians to achieve the aims of the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
