Reconciliation Action Plan
An integral part of our purpose is to enable our clients, our people and our communities to thrive. Success in fulfilling this purpose must include doing our part to improve equality of opportunity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) provides us with a plan to fulfil that purpose.
Our RAP is an opportunity to accept the invitation of First Nations People to walk with them to create a fuller expression of Australia’s nationhood and stride towards reconciliation. It will enable us to create stronger connections with First Nations People and is an opportunity to be an active part of the nation’s endeavour to listen to the voices and stories of the original people of this land on which we live
We are also proud to support the Uluru Statement from the Heart calling for a constitutionally enshrined First Nations voice to Parliament. We believe it is an integral step towards reconciliation in Australia. As lawyers, we are in a unique position to assist in distilling down the complexity of the debate around the need for constitutional change. We encourage other law firms, professional services firms and corporations across the country to join us in lending their voice to this important movement.
Our RAP Committee Co-Chairs, Danielle Davis and Erin Doyle, explain the importance of the RAP to our firm.
