CPA Group is delighted to announce a significant development with the endorsement received from Reconciliation Australia of our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), now joining an RAP community of over 1,000 corporate, government, and not-for-profit organisations that have formally committed to reconciliation through the RAP program since its inception in 2006.
At CPA Group, we know that reconciliation requires all sections of the community — governments, civil society, the private sector, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities — to contribute.
Through our Innovate RAP, we plan to continue to develop our approach to driving reconciliation through our business activities, services and programs, and develop mutually beneficial relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders.
As a company, CPA Group continues to develop this commitment through initiatives including employment and procurement strategies as well as awareness programs such as the recent Indigenous Cultural Awareness training conducted for all CPA Group Head Office staff and now being rolled out to our site staff, clients and their workforces.
We do not take this obligation lightly. As the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation reminded the nation in its final report:
“Reconciliation is hard work—it’s a long, winding and corrugated road, not a broad, paved highway. Determination and effort at all levels of government and in all sections of the community will be essential to make reconciliation a reality.”
But today, this is an occasion for celebration and CPA Group is planning to formally commemorate this important milestone in the company’s 20+ year history very soon. Stay tuned!!!
