Changing the narrative one day at a time.
NAIDOC Week is a time to celebrate the histories, cultures and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples – an important time to recognise the oldest, continuous living cultures on Earth. This year’s NAIDOC Week theme is For Our Elders.
At RCC, we want our legacy and positive impact to go beyond the built environment. We don’t baulk at this challenge. We see the role we can play in changing the narrative from one of ‘compliance’ to ‘personal reward,’ from ‘too hard’ to ‘it’s worth it.’
In 2021, we unveiled our Indigenous Impact Plan (IIP) – our roadmap to achieving greater engagement, building our reputation with Government clients and improving our partnerships with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
In line with Reconciliation Australia’s core dimensions of equality and equity, race relations, institutional integrity, unity and historical acceptance, our IIP has been designed to utilise the unique skills and perspectives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander jobseekers. With a focus on creating legacies in local communities, this plan helps create a sustainable, positive impact on all RCC projects and the local communities of which we are part of.
We look forward to sharing further NAIDOC updates with you in the coming week.
