Indigenous Participation

We exist to create equitable, inclusive and sustainable societies for today and future generations.

In Australia, we acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the traditional owners and custodians of this land and the places on which we live and work. We believe that reconciliation is a means to bring about mutual understanding and learning that will ultimately serve to create a sustainable, vibrant and connected future for all Australians.

Community

WSP started our journey in 2010 as one of the first engineering consultancies to develop a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Our RAP was developed in consultation with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Advisory Committee. The Advisory Committee consists of mostly external Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from different geographies. This is in keeping with our desire to add transparency to our intentions towards mutual understanding.

 

As part of our commitment through our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), we are keen to involve Indigenous communities in infrastructure, connecting people and stimulating growth for Indigenous businesses.

 

We are currently working closely with Reconciliation Australia in developing our new Elevate RAP.

We accepted the invitation to walk with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in a movement of the Australian people for a better future.
