Did you know that ETC has a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)?

ETC is committed to promoting reconciliation throughout our services and the ways we engage with the community. We are passionate about embracing the three key RAP values of Respect, Opportunities and Relationships for everyone who engages with ETC regardless of their race, religion or socio-economic background. The RAP is one of the ways in which we achieve our Vision and Mission and live by our values.

Through our RAP, we wish to contribute to creating a fairer and more equitable society in our regions of operation and support the resolution of Reconciliation Australia and the Australian Government to contribute to “Closing the Gap” – particularly in our core business areas of employment, training, and business growth.

Our RAP helps us to remain innovative about working together with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and communities to achieve our RAP vision for there to be an end to the disparity between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians.
