Reconciliation action plan

The Department's Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is part of a Commonwealth and State policy seeking to close the gap between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal Australians on life expectancy, educational achievement and employment opportunities.

  Acknowledgement of country

The Department of Transport acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of this land and pays respect to the Elders past, present and future for they hold the memories, the traditions, the culture and hopes of Aboriginal Australia.

  About the Reconciliation Action Plan

In May 2017, we officially launched our Reconciliation Action Plan for 2017-2019 to assist us in promoting reconciliation. The Plan builds on our previous Reconciliation Action Plan and further strengthens relationships with Aboriginal customers, welcoming and accepting differences and commonalities within our cultures and increasing the opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to contribute to DoT's Business.

An Access and Inclusion Committee monitors the implementation of the Plan throughout the Department, ensuring it remains relevant and is achieving its outcomes.

The Plan is a dynamic initiative, developed in consultation with staff across the Department.

The Plan includes actions that are unique to our business and services and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island people who access these services, as well as focusing on employment opportunities and raising awareness of cultural diversity.
