In June 2020, we launched a new Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to include Indigenous voices in our decision making and make a lasting impact towards Closing the Gap in employment and wellbeing.
This RAP progress report shows the steps we have taken to put the perspective of Indigenous employees and customers at the centre of our organisation.
Sean Gordon, the Independent Chair of the MAX Indigenous Advisory Committee, said: “MAX has achieved most of its RAP Deliverables - and has done so in a professional and inclusive manner with its Indigenous staff.
“We look forward to the next iteration of our RAP and continue to see results from the continued hard work of the IAC and RAP working group.”
The RAP progress report provides an update on our work in the following four areas:
MAX Chief Operating Officer (and RAP Working Group Chair), Darren Hooper said: “I’d like to thank our Indigenous Advisory Committee for making such important progress, especially in areas like our procurement policy, internal guidance for supporting Indigenous organisations, and training that uses the personal stories of our team members to help us understand the impacts of racism, and what we can do to stop it."
“We know there’s more we can do to support our Indigenous employees and customers. But we’re proud of what the team has already achieved in such a short space of time.”
