Is your Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) generating real outcomes or simply ticking boxes?

As we are passionate about helping corporates improve their Indigenous engagement, through our immersion travel services, we love sharing examples of companies who are getting it right. One success story is ATCO, a global company with an Australian presence, who have 19 Indigenous owned businesses in their supply chain and are about to onboard another 12 in the next few weeks.

Check out a live case study discussion facilitated by our Director Dwayne Good, talking with Hamish Johnson Procurement at ATCO and Richard Tester Managing Director of Aboriginal owned and Supply Nation Certified Red Arrow Surveying and Planning.
