Reconciliation action plan

AUGUST 2019 - AUGUST 2020

CPA Australia is proud to have launched its inaugural Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

 
The Reflect RAP is endorsed by Reconciliation Australia and formalises CPA Australia’s commitment to social change and reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the broader Australian community. 
 
Reconciliation Australia’s RAP framework provides a structured approach to assist organisations like CPA Australia in supporting reconciliation. There are four types of RAP: Reflect, Innovate, Stretch and Elevate. CPA Australia has a Reflect RAP, which is the first stage of our reconciliation journey. 
 
The Reflect RAP provides a framework for CPA Australia to build greater engagement with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.  We seek for our employees, members and the broader community to develop and foster a genuine
respect for, and understanding of, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their cultures.

In implementing a Reflect RAP, our objectives are to:

  • Build organisational awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, cultures, histories and achievements
  • Promote the inclusion and diversity of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees and members
  • Educate, promote and support career opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the Accounting profession
  • Celebrate significant events in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ calendars to promote awareness of histories and communities, and
  • Establish and maintain a RAP working group to implement the initiatives outlined in the RAP.
