Continuing our reconciliation journey
December 12 2022
Horizon Power is continuing our commitment to positively impact the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples with a new Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan 2022-2024 (RAP).
In the last few years, we’ve successfully increased employee awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture, and this RAP continues our journey of reconciliation.
Horizon Power CEO Stephanie Unwin says this new RAP captures our commitment and positions us for long-term success in the reconciliation space.
“It will move us from awareness to action and help us to embed programs around key reconciliation themes of relationships, respect and opportunities,” Ms Unwin says.
Our focus areas for the next two years include:
- Implement an Aboriginal Engagement Strategy
- Provide opportunities for our employees to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures
- Improve our recruitment and retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees
- Develop our Aboriginal Procurement Action Plan
The RAP has been endorsed by Reconciliation Australia.
With over 15 per cent of our customers identifying as Aboriginal, it is vital that we reflect the communities that we operate in.
We’ll continue to work with the wonderful Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses and stakeholders in regional WA and empower them to make a difference in their communities.
Across our organisation, we’re committed to explore how everything we do can positively impact the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through proactive and sustainable business decisions.
Horizon Power acknowledges the Traditional Custodians throughout Western Australia and their continuing connection to the land, waters and community. We pay our respects to all members of the Aboriginal communities and their cultures; and to Elders past, present and emerging.
