Suncorp has launched its Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), in support of the social and economic prosperity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Michael Cameron, Suncorp CEO and managing director, said Suncorp’s RAP will be implemented over the next 12 months, and will provide “a strong foundation to build and strengthen relationships and deepen the understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and achievements.”
“The RAP involves programs that will improve the social and financial resilience of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians,” the Suncorp boss said.
The insurance giant was officially welcomed into the RAP program by Ann Weldon, Metropolitan Local Aboriginal Land Council director, who opened the event with a welcome for Karen Mundine, Country and Reconciliation Australia CEO.
“Suncorp displays a deep commitment to building and maintaining respectful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, organisations, and communities,” Mundine said. “As a top 20 ASX-listed company, this reflect RAP will assist Suncorp in developing its own unique vision for reconciliation, as well as commitments to applying cultural learning, respectful business practice, and promotion of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment within its sphere of influence.”
