Hall & Wilcox has signalled its commitment to Reconciliation with the launch of its first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
The RAP has a ‘Reflect’ theme. Our areas of focus over the next year include learning and confronting the truth of our nation and the history of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia; and providing opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
‘Our RAP has an emphasis on truth telling. We want our people to better understand the history and culture of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and, in doing so, demonstrate our commitment and respect,’ said Managing Partner Tony Macvean.
‘Our RAP will be an enriching way for us to learn more about First Nations people and understand how we can help drive Reconciliation in this country.’
Our actions and commitments include forming relationships with the First Nations communities where we work and improving opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to undertake internships or employment with the firm.
We will continue providing pro bono assistance to disadvantaged Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people and organisations working for their benefit.
Watch Tony Macvean and our RAP Committee Co-Chairs Danielle Davis and Erin Doyle explain why the RAP is important. Read our RAP here.
