Reconciliation Action Plan Nov 2020 - Nov 2022

RAP cover

APRA’s second Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) – an Innovate RAP - has been approved by both APRA’s Executive Committee and Reconciliation Australia. The key themes of APRA’s Innovate RAP are:

  • Establishing strong relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders 
  • Respecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, cultures and histories
  • Creating opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people within APRA
  • Strong governance with a greater emphasis on program management.

These themes will be delivered over the 2020 – 2022 period through a range of actions, including:

  • Establishing and rolling out a cultural awareness program 
  • Establishing and building external connections with First Nations groups focusing on the financial sector
  • Partnering with Indigenous Cadet programs
  • Maintaining participation in Indigenous recruitment channels
  • Delivering events for NAIDOC and National Reconciliation Week, and
  • Reviewing and refreshing APRA’s anti-discrimination policies.
