Arcadis has released its first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), the Innovate RAP.
Endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, the Innovate RAP contains a detailed and transparent range of strategies, targets and measurable actions we will take over the next two years to make a positive impact on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment at Arcadis and broader cultural change.
"I am very pleased that we have the RAP in place to provide a clear framework for our focus for the next two years," says Greg Steele, CEO at Arcadis Australia Pacific.
"Our vision for the RAP is to make a positive contribution towards building respect, supporting education and creating employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples within our business."
The Innovate RAP builds on work the organisation has done with Engineering Aid Australia over the last five years to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to consider a career in engineering. In addition, Arcadis has partnered with CareerTrackers to offer traineeships to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people while they are at university.
