Our vision for reconciliation is to reduce health and wellbeing inequities between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and non-Indigenous Australians through sport. We understand the importance of creating a workplace culture where diversity is welcomed, valued, and supported to improve wellbeing, and will prioritise increasing employment, procurement, and partnership opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples as part of this.
Through our leadership role, we will work closely with our colleagues and sport partners to drive our identified Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) goals.
The RAP Steering Committee is comprised of staff from across the ASC and works closely with colleagues and sport partners to deliver our identified RAP goals. The primary responsibilities of the Steering Committee are to:
- ensure the delivery of the ASC Reconciliation Action Plan
- represent the ASC within internal and external reconciliation activities
- promote reconciliation activities across the ASC and the wider sport community.
The Australian Sports Commission has committed to creating positive and lasting change to reduce inequality between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians.
