We exist to connect communities through lasting projects and that is why we are exploring practical actions to help drive our contribution to reconciliation within SYSTRA and in the communities in which we operate.
Our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan
SYSTRA ANZ has committed to a Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) which allows our organisation to spend time scoping and developing relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders, deciding on our vision for reconciliation and exploring our sphere of influence. This process will provide the solid foundations to ensure our future RAPs are meaningful, mutually beneficial, and sustainable.
The company is committed to Diversity and Inclusiveness in the Workplace and recognises that we must create a space for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander voices to be heard.
So far, our organisation has partnered with Position Promo, an Indigenous owned promotional marketing business operating nationally and Kulbardi, an Indigenous owned business in South-West Sydney for the provision of office equipment and supplies. We are also working with Saretta Fielding and the Malang Indigenous Corporation for interior artwork and decorations.
We have established a working group to support the further development and implementation of the RAP. Todd Russell, Founder of CATOnline has a permanent position on our RAP working group. Our CEO remains the champion of our RAP and The Executive Leadership team supports the working group initiatives.
As part of our RAP commitment, we have partnered with with Engineering Aid Australia to help Indigenous high school students transition from high school to an engineering degree.
