|Ausgrid acknowledges and pays respect to the past, present and future Traditional Custodians and Elders of this nation and the continuation of cultural, spiritual and educational practices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.|
Our network and operations span the traditional country of 17 languages, tribal and nation groups in Sydney, the Central Coast and Hunter regions of New South Wales. We want to lead and foster a workforce, and approach to our operations, that embraces the learnings, voices, cultures and histories of these Traditional Owners into our own organisation.
Reconciliation is about unity and respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and non- Indigenous Australians. It is about respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage and valuing justice and equity for all Australians.
Our vision for reconciliation is an energy industry that recognises the Traditional Owners of the lands we operate on, and celebrates our connection to country. It is important that we recognise that our customers and infrastructure live on ancestral lands.
In May 2022 Ausgrid launched its innovative Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) which commits to building momentum towards achieving our vision for reconciliation. Our immediate goal on the path to achieving this vision, is building internal awareness of the journey of reconciliation and the important role our RAP plays towards supporting an inclusive and diverse workforce.
The RAP has four areas each with specific deliverables- Respect, Relationships, Opportunity and Governance.
