CPB Contractors celebrated the launch of its new Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) at a ceremony in Melbourne attended by clients, Indigenous suppliers and employees.
Jason Spears, Managing Director, officially launched the RAP saying: “Our new RAP renews our commitment to ensuring Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples benefit from the training, employment and business opportunities that our work provides. It provides new initiatives and opportunities that will advance our already strong commitment to reconciliation.”
The RAP was celebrated at a ceremony that featured a stunning performance by Kee’ahn, who was awarded the Archie Roach Foundation Award at the 2020 National Indigenous Music Awards.
Sharon Gray, Indigenous and Social Inclusion Manager, said: “Our new RAP builds on what we’ve achieved so far on our reconciliation journey. Our targets for Indigenous participation through employment, training and supplier opportunities make a real difference, and cultural awareness initiatives are being embraced by projects from one side of our beautiful country to the other.”
“CPB Contractors RAP is something we can all be proud of.”
The new RAP has been approved by Reconciliation Australia and is available here.
