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.

  About the Reconciliation Action Plan

In February 2020, we officially launched our Reconciliation Action Plan for 2020-2022 to assist us in promoting reconciliation. The Plan builds on our previous Reconciliation Action Plans, to foster cultural respect and build upon our relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to ensure our workplaces, information and services are inclusive and accessible to all Western Australians.

Since the launch of DoT's first RAP in May 2013, we have implemented strategies to move towards a more culturally diverse and aware workforce, and to conduct business in ways that promote opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

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