It was a year ago that Taylor embarked on our first Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan. Focused on meaningful outcomes, our RAP builds on Taylor’s strong legacy in achieving and exceeding Aboriginal Participation targets on our projects.
One of the most rewarding aspects of our Reconciliation Action Plan is connecting with new partners. And none have been more pivotal than the KARI Foundation. KARI is the largest Aboriginal Charity in Australia that exists to support Aboriginal people and community, particularly education, employment and connecting everyone to celebrate culture.
KARI has generously advised us on our RAP from the outset and continued to become involved with Taylor in; ceremony and engagement, cultural awareness, procurement, tender advice, and volunteering opportunities.
Taylor is proud to have developed an annual $15,000 KARI / Taylor #WomenBreakingGround Scholarship that will support high achieving female Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students in tertiary studies in Construction. In this first year (FY23), the scholarship will support a number of high school students and, in coming years, Taylor will continue that support through to one selected candidate’s 4 years’ of University, and a Taylor Cadetship.
