Reconciliation Action Plan

2022
We are focused on increasing engagement with First Nations communities, increasing the number of First Nations employees at BAE Systems Australia, and forming sustainable relationships with First Nations businesses.

On 17 March 2016 we launched our Company's first Reconciliation Action Plan and became the first Australian defence company to detail our commitments to support First Nations employees and the wider communities in which we operate in this way.
 
Since then, BAE Systems Australia has launched its second and third Reconciliation Plans, in 2019 and 2022. Our RAP supports and guides the culture we are working to create and that is an inclusive and diverse workplace. 
 
Of particular importance - our efforts to encourage First Nations businesses to become part of our Australia-wide supply chain; to create employment and development opportunities and to recognise and acknowledge important events and cultural activities.
 
Through engagement of our people, indigenous companies and the communities in which we operate, BAE Systems Australia is striving to improve the employment and development of First Nations peoples. We are building a workplace where people respect and support each other, our customers and our suppliers.
