Kelsian Group Launches Reconciliation Action Plan at 'Innovate' Level

Wednesday 10 July 2024

Kelsian is proud to announce the launch of its Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), which has been classified at the 'Innovate' level by Reconciliation Australia. This significant milestone reflects our ongoing commitment to fostering strong relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and implementing strategies for further reconciliation.

The 'Innovate' RAP allows Kelsian to test and establish effective initiatives that promote cultural awareness, inclusivity, and respect within our organisation and the broader community. This plan includes a range of actions aimed at increasing cultural competency, supporting economic opportunities, and enhancing engagement with Indigenous communities.

Managing Director and Group CEO, Clint Feuerherdt expressed their excitement about this important step: "We are delighted to launch our Innovate RAP, which represents our dedication to creating a more inclusive and equitable future. This plan not only strengthens our commitment to reconciliation but also aligns with our core values of respect, integrity, and community engagement."

Key initiatives outlined in the RAP include:

Cultural Awareness Training: Providing cultural awareness training to deepen understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.

Employment Opportunities: Increasing employment and career development opportunities for Indigenous Australians within our organisation.

Supplier Diversity: Promoting the use of Indigenous suppliers and businesses in our procurement processes.

Community Partnerships: Building and nurturing partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to support local initiatives and programs.

As part of our RAP journey, Kelsian will meet regularly to measure our progress and achievements to ensure transparency and accountability. Kelsian is committed to making meaningful contributions to reconciliation and creating lasting positive impacts.
