A key goal for NDY is to further reconciliation with Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities.
To us, reconciliation is about fostering strong and respectful relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians, for the benefit of all.
NDY is committed to creating positive, long term relationships with representatives from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities with a view to educating and inspiring our people to create a harmonious society.
It is our aspiration that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples may enjoy the same opportunities in life as non-Indigenous Australians, enabling us to walk together into a prosperous future.
In August 2019, NDY formed a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) Working Group consisting of fifteen passionate individuals across our Australian offices with the goal of drafting and implementing our first RAP.
Our Reflect RAP, which has been formally endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, contains specific, practical actions that will drive NDY’s contribution to reconciliation both internally and within the communities where we operate.
