Reconciliation Action Plan

A commitment to Understanding and Action

Acknowledgement of Country

Douglas Partners acknowledges Australia’s First Peoples as the Traditional Owners of the Land and Sea on which we operate. We pay our respects to Elders past and present and to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across the many communities in which we live, visit and work. We recognise and respect their ongoing cultural and spiritual connection to Country.
Our commitment to reconciliation

As Douglas Partners has grown from a small business in the 1960s, we now find ourselves as a large business that recognises the social context in which it operates. As a company, we strive to promote inclusion and believe a RAP will help to support this commitment.

Recognising that First Nations peoples never ceded the sovereignty of the country we call Australia. Douglas Partners seeks to understand how our business activity can contribute to reconciliation by providing awareness and effective action.

We aspire to implement a culture of recognition and respect for First Nations peoples within our workplace and seek to utilise a RAP as a vehicle to provide this. Douglas Partners acknowledges that our business practice needs to evolve to demonstrate tangible reconciliation outcomes that we can be proud of and that enable us to promote our business as socially responsible to ensure substantive benefits for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) provides an important part of the Douglas Partners journey of social and corporate responsibility to the community of which we are a part and allows for sustainable and strategic action to advance reconciliation. By working towards stated goals and allowing for self-reflection, Douglas Partners can contribute to the growing movement of reconciliation for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and create an environment that fosters respect, understanding and responsibility.

Keys elements of our RAP

Our Reflect RAP outlines specific elements that we are committed to working towards.

These include building strong relationships, fostering respect, and creating opportunities within our organization and community.

We recognize the importance of not just talking about reconciliation but actively participating in the journey towards a more united and inclusive future.

As we navigate this journey, Douglas Partners remains dedicated to advancing reconciliation and creating an inclusive workplace that reflects our core values of People, Integrity, Improvement, and Excellence.
