Earlier this month UGL launched its first Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), and its fourth overall RAP.

UGL’s vision for reconciliation is to see communities united in a world that accepts and embraces cultural differences.

Sam Goldsmith, UGL’s Executive General Manager Services and RAP Chair said:

“This RAP amplifies the work which we’ve already started and makes a strong commitment to enhance our efforts and achievements into the future. As a Stretch RAP, we’re publicly holding ourselves to account on what we actually deliver not just relying on good intentions.”

We celebrated by officially launching our RAP at the UGL Regional Linx depot in Dubbo, the largest depot on the Country Regional Network.

“It was great to see UGL promoting and celebrating the national launch of its Stretch RAP in the regional centre of Dubbo as it demonstrates our commitment is strongly inclusive of all regional and remote communities. I’m proud of the work we’re doing out here in Dubbo and our high Indigenous participation rates which we continue to focus on increasing. I particularly valued connecting further with our suppliers and partners at this special event.” Joseph Craigie, Aboriginal & Social Engagement Manager, UGL Regional Linx

We’d like to thank all our partners, customers and suppliers who joined us to celebrate this important day in our reconciliation journey. 

We will use our national footprint and large-scale workforce to foster a culturally safe workplace and build a stronger community across Australia, with the aim of achieving our goal towards reconciliation. 

At UGL, when we stand together as equals, with trust and respect for all, we become the employer of choice where everyone feels safe and proud to be part of this journey.

Special thanks to our local Indigenous suppliers for the event:

Indigenous Cultural Adventures catered the event providing a delicious bush tucka feast for our guests.

Chocolate on Purpose supplied some ‘Bush Food Chocolate’, a fusion of the finest Belgian chocolate and the best of Australian native botanicals aka ‘Bush Food’.

Red Earth Gallery’s Lewis Burns performed the smoking ceremony and Welcome to Country. Lewis also skilfully played the didgeridoo during traditional Aboriginal dances performed by cousins Tianne Wells and Xavier Wells.
