DMIRS is proud to acknowledge and celebrate the rich and diverse culture and affinity with the land of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
An equitable and inclusive workforce with an understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and people at DMIRS – is our vision for employment, training and reconciliation. The department is actively involved in reconciliation and has a RAP Committee to lead and guide our commitment and vision for ongoing reconciliation.
The department is involved in projects across Western Australia, often working closely with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We recognise that these relationships and our involvement in so many projects put us in a prime position to help make a difference.
The department values the ongoing contribution of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff who share our focus on delivering key strategies to ensure the continued growth of the resources industry, and to maximise the economic and social return to all Western Australians.
Letter of Intent
We are currently reviewing our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) and developing a new DMIRS RAP for our department, whilst progressing our current RAP initiatives in the department’s RAP 2016 - 2018. It is our commitment to empower, support and develop our people by respecting individuality and diversity, both internal and external to the organisation. By fostering a workplace culture that is respectful, welcoming and encouraging, we will create long term sustainable activities that will make a real difference in the community.
Our approach is to create real work and career opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We will guide, mentor and support people of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent who are working with us to allow them to fully realise and achieve their abilities and goals.
Our plan will guide us on a shared journey that will enrich our knowledge and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and history, build constructive change and foster meaningful relationships.
The DMIRS Reconciliation Action Plan to be launched in 2019.
