FWBC is committed to Indigenous affairs in a whole-of-government framework. FWBC is committed to working cooperatively with other government agencies and departments to improve opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples – both staff and those within the building and construction industry.

FWBC’s 2013-15 Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) identifies the steps we take to progress reconciliation and learn from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in the building and construction industry.

The RAP was designed to be accessible and achievable, and to involve as many people across the agency as possible. Key actions relate to relationships, respect and opportunities. FWBC’s RAP Working Group is led by Glyn Cryer, Executive Director, Prevention, Performance & Innovation, met on eight occasions in 2012-13 and a Reconciliation Portal was published on the FWBC intranet which contains project information and a range of resources to promote awareness.

The FWBC RAP is posted on the FWBC website and intranet and also on the website of Reconciliation Australia.
