Unitywater renews commitment to reconciliation in NAIDOC Week
Unitywater has renewed its commitment to reconciliation with the launch of its second Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) during NAIDOC Week.
Unitywater Executive Manager Customer Delivery Rhett Duncan said Unitywater launched its first plan in 2018 and the new one, titled Innovate, builds on the initiatives of the last two years.
“We’re proud to launch our second RAP at Unitywater to formalise our ongoing commitment to meaningful change and improving the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, particularly in our service region,” he said.
“Over the next two years we are committed to providing further opportunities for our people to learn about Indigenous culture, provide employment opportunities, look at ways to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses and celebrate and acknowledge national Indigenous events across our organisation.
“We will also continue to provide engineering and technical support to the remote community of Mornington Island for improved water and sewerage services.”
Mr Duncan said Unitywater had also installed Acknowledgement of Country plaques at its four main sites to acknowledge the Traditional Owners and custodians of the land and waters of the region.
