Metro drives towards more inclusivity with Indigenous Australians

12 Jul 2019, Tom Mclaughlin

Metro has launched its first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) which will lead the way to better understanding and stronger participation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

This RAP builds on past support for reconciliation at Metro and formalises our commitment to a more considered and deliberate reconciliation effort.

Three are three main areas of focus for the RAP:

  • Building relationships between Metro and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees, passengers, communities and businesses.
  • Improving employment opportunities, supplier diversity and community programs.
  • Using the assets, and visibility of Metro’s network to foster recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ histories, cultures and achievements.

Metro CEO Raymond O’Flaherty said: “I am proud to present the first Metro RAP and I am confident it will set us on the right path to connect communities and enrich our city by building genuine relationships and creating opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.”
