Learning about First Nations culture and heritage is not only integral to the work we do, but it is a personal journey for our people who actively seek to learn, listen and acknowledge First Nations people as the Traditional Owners of this land.
We are committed to walking together to create communities that reflect our deeply held belief in equality and social equity, which is why we work closely with First Nations peoples to achieve this.
Our commitment is reflected in several ways, it can be seen formally through our Reconciliation Action Plan, which has been endorsed twice by Reconciliation Australia.
Our people take part in annual cultural awareness training each year, learning about Boorloo from Noongar people. This awareness training gives us new insights and a new perspective of the places we live and work in, country that has been walked on thousands of years before settlement.
We employ First Nations advisors to ensure our projects are culturally appropriate and take into consideration the needs and aspirations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
