MNG launches Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan
6 June 2023
MNG are pleased to officially launch our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). This is the first step in our reconciliation journey, and we are extremely excited about the direction ahead. This comprehensive framework is designed to guide us in building stronger relationships, respecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and taking meaningful actions towards reconciliation. It outlines our vision for creating positive change and drive cultural awareness within our organisation.
At the heart of the Reflect RAP is the recognition of the need to listen, learn, and engage with First Nations peoples. To ensure an inclusive and collaborative approach, MNG extensively consulted with Reconciliation Australia, Elevate Diversity and Aboriginal Consultant, Christine Ross, during the plan’s development. These consultations provided valuable insights and guidance, shaping the Reflect RAP into a comprehensive and culturally sensitive framework that we take great pride in.
We thank First Nations Contemporary Artist, Brenda Mau, for her exceptional talent and cultural insight in creating the incredible artwork that will accompany our Reflect RAP. Her ability to infuse traditional symbolism with contemporary elements has resulted in a visually impressive representation of our business, and its message of reflection and unity.
Committed to enhancing our surveying practice and making a difference in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, our Reflect RAP will focus on delivering on four key areas:
Through our Reflect RAP, our aim is to continue to create a diverse and inclusive workplace that provides a supportive and culturally sensitive work environment for our entire team.
Organisational development & practice
Through continuous training and awareness programs, we will deepen our understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and contemporary issues. This shared knowledge will enable us to build stronger relationships and enhance our capacity for empathy and understanding.
Education is a powerful tool for reconciliation, and we are dedicated to sharing knowledge and promoting cultural understanding within our company and the wider community.
Service and Projects
Our Reflect RAP places great emphasis on collaborating with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, organisations and suppliers to develop initiatives that create a positive impact.
Scott Anderson, CEO and Managing Director of MNG said, “At MNG, we have been proud to work alongside many communities across Australia since 1989. Now, as we embark on our Reflect RAP journey, we’re putting our focus on understanding what reconciliation means to us. I’m excited to see MNG evolve as a business throughout this journey.”
