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.
As we continue our ongoing reconciliation journey, in 2019 BAE Systems Australia launched its second Reconciliation Action Plan.
Our RAP supports and guides the culture we are working to create and that is a diverse and inclusive 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.
