Reconciliation Action Plan

The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) program provides a framework for organisations to support the national reconciliation movement.

A RAP is a strategic document that supports an organisation’s business plan. It includes practical actions that will drive an organisation’s contribution to reconciliation both internally and in the communities in which it operates.

The RAP Program contributes to advancing the five dimensions of reconciliation by supporting organisations to develop respectful relationships and create meaningful opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

ADT’s RAP Working Group will be convening in January 2021 to commence work on the ‘Reflect’ RAP.
