Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

Building a more equitable future

TransGrid acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Custodians of this land and we pay our respects to their Elders past and present. 

Our vision for reconciliation

We aspire towards a future where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ deep knowledge of, and connection to, land is respected and celebrated by all who live here. Our vision also incorporates a society where education and employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are of the same high standard as those enjoyed by many other Australians. 

Our Innovate RAP

We know that TransGrid has an important role to play in creating a more equitable future. In February 2020, we launched our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), which is the second stage of RAP under the Reconciliation Australia framework. Our Innovate RAP outlines our goals for reconciliation as well as the steps we will take to achieve them. It will capitalise on the progress we made in delivering our first Reflect RAP in 2019. 

In May 2020, we published our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Engagement and Participation Policy, which affirms TransGrid’s commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities during the development, delivery, maintenance and operation of our projects and assets.

To help us advance reconciliation, we partner with several organisations including CareerTrackers, Supply Nation, the UTS Galuwa Experience and the Clontarf Foundation. We also sponsor the 7 News TransGrid Indigenous Achievement Award, which aims to acknowledge young Indigenous people who are using their life experiences to give back to their community.
