Reconciliation Action Plan 2011-13

Our directorate plays a key role in supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children, young people and their families; and in working closely with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and community partners. For directorate staff, reconciliation is more than just a word, or a box we tick for government. It’s embedded in our daily practice and something we embrace enthusiastically. That’s why we already exceed government targets of employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and why we’ll increase these even more. Reconciliation is something we are deeply committed to — it’s part of being good at what we do, for the benefit of our clients.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Action Plan 2011-13

Employment makes a positive difference in the lives of families, and there is a particular need to improve the employment outcomes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. While the directorate values all our staff, the plan pushes us to be a leader in the ACT Public Sector and the community and go further than we have before in employing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. But it’s not enough just to employ people — we need to retain our staff and provide opportunities for satisfying careers.

Accordingly, the plan’s actions aim to create inclusive workplaces that attract staff and offer them professional recognition, career development and personal achievement.
