We seek to create a diverse and dynamic culture, which embraces diversity in numerous ways. In Australia, we aspire to help create a more inclusive culture that embraces our differences and celebrates our heritage including the knowledge and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
We believe passionately in making a difference and using our combined talent and energy to create meaningful change in our communities. In Australia today, there exists significant disparity between the opportunities available to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and other Australians. Bain & Company believes in reducing this disparity through reconciliation and contributing to the equity and self-determination of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
Our vision for Reconciliation is an Australian society which is equitable, with opportunities afforded to all, and inclusive, with all people and cultures respected and celebrated. It is for a nation which honours and takes pride in the diverse array of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledges, languages and cultures. It is an Australia where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are culturally, economically and socially empowered and have control of their own destiny. Importantly, it is a society which understands and acknowledges its history—the good and the bad, the prideful and shameful - while being able and willing to have an honest, meaningful conversation about how that history has shaped each of our current experiences.
This Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is the next step in furthering our commitment to our True North values, while contributing to and supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
