Reconciliation Action Plan

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.

NAIDOC Week 2021 (4 July – 11 July)

NAIDOC Week is a chance for all Australians to celebrate the rich history, culture and achievements of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Each year the NRMA Group celebrates and acknowledges NAIDOC Week across our businesses. We encourage our people to reflect on the understanding Indigenous Australians hold towards preserving the country we call home and learn from them – they have much to teach us. 

This year’s theme ‘Heal Country’ calls on all of us to seek greater protection for our lands, waterways, sacred sites and cultural heritage from exploitation, desecration and destruction and is especially resonant in a world fighting the decimating effects of climate change. Please join us in celebrating NAIDOC Week with family, friends and colleagues and reflecting on how we can all do our part to ‘Heal Country’

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.
