Continuing our reconciliation journey
Dec 10, 2020

Since launching its Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) in October 2018, QIC has sought numerous opportunities to embed the RAP into our organisation, driving reconciliation, awareness and inclusion in the business.


For QICGRE, the RAP obligations relevant to our work are:

  • Engage with and build relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities
  • Investigate supplier diversity and communicate procurement opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses
  • Implement strategies to engage our employees in reconciliation and build understanding of how QIC's RAP commitments relate to them
  • Raise awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, cultural protocols, histories and achievements and develop our employees' cultural learning and competencies
  • Acknowledge and celebrate key cultural dates including National Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week
  • Investigate opportunities to further embed an Acknowledgement of Country and RAP initiatives in our organisation, including in our centres
  • Build understanding of and develop Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment pathways
  • Maintain systems to regularly track, measure and report on our RAP commitments to employees and the business.

During FY20, QICGRE worked with Queensland Health to install two additional flag poles on the forecourt between 111 George Street and 33 Charlotte Street in Brisbane CBD. The new poles enable the Aboriginal flag and Torres Strait Islander flags to be flown permanently, alongside the Australian and Queensland flags. For more on this, see our Case Study.
