Relationships are at the heart what we do at Reece and our Reconciliation vision reflects this. We are committed to working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples - listening, learning and gaining a greater understanding of the role Reece can play in moving toward a more equitable Australia.
We understand to be successful in our vision for Reconciliation, we need to create opportunities through our actions - increasing employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and supporting them to have successful careers at Reece. Leveraging our network and experience to engage First Nations owned suppliers and continuing to foster a culture within Reece that recognises and values the contributions and experiences of First Nations’ peoples and shared histories of all Australians are also equally important to Reece.
Our first Innovate RAP supported us to understand the role we can play and has laid the foundation for the next phase of our Reconciliation journey, our second Innovate RAP, which focuses on taking measurable and meaningful action so we can continue to build on our progress into the future.Reconciliation Action Plan
We support our leaders with cultural awareness training and experiences so that they can share their knowledge and lead our teams, and our customers, to create culturally safe and diverse workplaces.
Through apprenticeship programs as well as our partnerships with Clontarf Foundation we look to create employment pathways and opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students across the business in the trade industry.
Part of our new RAP commitment is to work with and learn from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities to understand the barriers and challenges to accessing clean water and sanitation and the role we can play, through our support of the Reece Foundation, to improve access to clean water and sanitation.
