We are proud to announce the launch of Experience Co’s Reconciliation Action Plan. This important document reflects a turning point within our organisation to ensure that our behaviours make significant and positive change in the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
At Experience Co, our culture is built around the values of Experience, Adventure, Respect and Safety. We respect one another, and the environment in which we operate. Celebrating cultural diversity and commonality nurtures understanding and fosters connections.
Respecting cultural differences is crucial to our future, and developing a Reconciliation Action Plan and setting achievable goals is an important step towards strengthening inner-cultural relationships and raising cultural awareness internally and externally.
One of Experience Co’s greatest achievements in recent years is creating Dreamtime Dive and Snorkel, the firs outer reef experience to celebrate Australia’s First Nations People and their connection to Sea Country. Combining the world’s largest coral reef system with the world’s oldest living culture provides visitors with authentic cultural understandings through storytelling, onboard demonstrations, and spiritual connections.
In the future, we strive to provide even more opportunities and sustainable careers for First Australians. We intend to continue and extend partnerships with educational programs to facilitate job placements, as well as to build relationships with other communities and organisations to engage within our reconciliation journey.
With our Reconciliation Action Plan, we look forward to making a valuable contribution towards reconciliation in Australia.
