A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) program provides a framework for organisations to be inclusive in their work and contribute to national reconciliation
Sonder acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Peoples of Australia.
We pay respect to them, their cultural and spiritual heritage, and to Elders past, present, and emerging.
We acknowledge the ongoing impact of intergenerational trauma that has occurred since colonisation
and commit to truth-telling as we walk alongside them toward reconciliation.
Our vision for reconciliation
Better Care, Better Health & Better Access through a culturally safe workplace that builds understanding, respect and shared responsibility along with community leadership in our reconciliation journey.
Sonder’s 2021 – 2023 RAP will:
Support our journey to becoming a culturally safe and competent organisation.
Support us to develop positive and reflective relationships to enable us to listen, learn and be led by the people and communities we seek to support.
Connect and integrate with Sonder’s existing internal strategic directions, frameworks and policies, and inform the development of future organisational planning.
Enable us to create an inclusive and open workplace for both staff and community members by facilitating cultural learning opportunities for staff.
Build opportunities for leadership, employment and retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples at Sonder.
