This week is National Reconciliation Week and at TransitCare, we believe that we have a responsibility to explore opportunities for cultural understanding, and initiate meaningful and respectful working relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and organisations.
We have developed a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to publically acknowledge our commitment to finding culturally appropriate solutions to unmet transport needs for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in our service delivery areas. We expect our RAP journey to include broadening our knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People’s cultures, traditions, histories, challenges and finally their goals for future community engagement.
TransitCare has a number of successful associations with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders, yet we acknowledge that learnings must endure and we are grateful to be guided by their voices. Our RAP adds depth to our relationships with these partners and assists us to embed greater cultural awareness across all levels of our business.
Our staff overwhelmingly support the RAP and our teams are committed to participating in these initiatives. We have a highly motivated and diverse workforce and we hope to become an employer of choice for Indigenous Australians and build on that diversity.
We are proud to have joined the ever-growing movement of people making a difference and we look forward to an exciting journey of Reconciliation.
