Message from the CEO
ARTC continues reconciliation Journey
We recently launched our first Reconciliation Action Plan at an event held at our Muswellbrook Provisioning Centre in Wannarua Country NSW, with local Elder Laurie Perry delivering the Welcome to Country and Waylon Boney and the Wakagetti team providing the dancers and moving Smoking Ceremony.
Mark Campbell, ARTC CEO and Managing Director, said this plan will help map out a practical direction that sets a commitment to reconciliation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
“Our vision is to create a more diverse and equitable organisation – a workplace where belonging begins with safety, wellbeing, and acceptance, and where opportunities abound,” Mark said.
“Reconciliation is everyone’s responsibility – this plan will help foster employment and business opportunities for First Nations people, so everyone can benefit in the future that we’re building together.
“We are ready to step up – as we commit to lay a foundation that allows our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees to always feel safe, supported and heard.”
In late 2021, our Reconciliation Action Plan Team commissioned Elenore Binge a proud Goomeroi/Kamilaroi woman to create a piece of art to represent our aspiration for reconciliation.
