Reconciliation Action Plan

Artist Riki Salam's piece for the NRMA's RAP: Keep Country Moving

The NRMA acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land and waterways on which our organisation operates. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and future.

Acknowledging National Reconciliation Week 2021 (27 May – 3 June)

The NRMA’s commitment to reconciliation with Australia’s First Peoples is unwavering and we actively seek to engage all our people in contributing to this ideal. The theme for this year’s Reconciliation Action Week is ‘More than a word. Reconciliation takes action’. It urges all of us to take ‘braver and more impactful’ action. What actions can we, as an organisation and as individuals do that is meaningful and makes a real difference?

How can we contribute to a reconciled Australia where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have the same opportunities, life expectancy, health, education and choices that most of us enjoy? This year we are asking employees across our businesses what actions NRMA could take with respect to reconciliation that would make them proud.

Please join us in taking meaningful action and reflecting on the meaning and purpose of National Reconciliation Week and the many benefits reconciliation will have for all Australia.

For 100 years, the NRMA has helped Australians on their journeys, and we strive to keep our communities moving together. We are people moving people.

In July 2019, we launched our second Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), to signify our continued dedication in providing meaningful and sustainable outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their communities.

As the NRMA is transforming from a roadside assistance company into a transport and tourism organisation, we have made sure our second RAP is anchored in our motoring heritage as well as incorporated into our newly acquired businesses in the transport and tourism sector.

Our Stretch RAP maintains our focus on fostering education and employment pathways as well as economic prosperity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.

We seek to foster the rich cultural heritage and protocols of First Nations peoples, and partner with organisations that enable opportunities for skills training and employment in local communities.

We’re committed to opening doors for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander talent in our expanded travel and tourism businesses through the creation of additional pathways to employment. 

We also remain focused on challenging ourselves to create and develop sustainable commercial opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses.

We understand our reconciliation journey still has a long way to go and we look forward to building stronger relationships with Traditional Owners, organisations and community members as we strive towards our shared vision.
