Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2018–2020

Image of cover of the RAP documentDVA is dedicated to being a diverse, vibrant and inclusive workplace, where individuals are valued and empowered to achieve their potential.

We are working towards practical Reconciliation, where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community build relationships based on mutual respect and recognition of the unique place First Australians hold in our society. We seek to be part of an Australian community that recognises and celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, cultural identity, community, economic empowerment and self-determination.

DVA's Reconciliation Action Plan 2018–2020 (RAP) supports our Closing the Gap commitment by building on a culture of mutually respectful relationships, demonstrating understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples' culture. It maps our journey towards supporting increased opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff, increasing the cultural competency of all of our staff, and ensuring that we provide culturally sensitive and appropriate services for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander veterans.
