So too, Diversity is one of our four guiding Principles; Listen, Create, Diversity and Excel. We believe that diversity and inclusion makes our business stronger through harnessing the power of diverse views, ideas, and experiences.
Taylor has a strong legacy in Aboriginal participation, with many of our projects continuing to achieve more than double the required contractual targets. We believe that we can achieve this together by working closely with our Indigenous and industry partners – both existing and new.
Taylor recognises and acknowledges the enormous economic, social and cultural contribution of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples of NSW. We believe in contributing to a national culture that represents equality and equity, freedom from racism, and historical acceptance of our shared history.
In pursuing our business objectives, we undertake to consult with First Nation Elders and leaders of local Aboriginal communities to ensure that design, celebration of cultural connection to place, and employment and training initiatives accord with the cultural and social needs of the communities in which we operate.
Our Reflect RAP is something that we will deliver together by October 2022.
I look forward to working closely with Reconciliation Australia, our people and partners as we begin our important reconciliation journey.
George Bardas, Chief Executive Officer
