Transurban FY18 Sustainability Report

FY18 Sustainability Report Transurban 25

Diversity, inclusion and wellbeing

Cultural diversity


We acknowledge Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognise the continuing connection to lands, waters and communities. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders both past and present. The acknowledgement, respect and proud celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures is a key focus of Transurban’s Reconciliation Action Plan —we want to see these qualities demonstrated at all times by both our employees and our business partners. We also want to see equitable standards of living and social mobility for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Launched in 2014, our Australian Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) uses a holistic approach to create meaningful relationships, enhance respect and promote opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The plan guides the development of opportunities and advance reconciliation. Case study Genesys Works, changing the lives of under-represented minority youths in Virginia We are proud to partner with Genesys Works, a not-for-profit social enterprise focused on changing the lives of under- represented minority high school students through providing meaningful work experience. Every August we welcome a high school student to join our business for a year via a part-time internship, and we also provide ongoing mentoring.

National reconciliation week Each year, Transurban hosts events across its Australian offices. In FY18 these events included: • a panel discussion on the theme ‘Don’t Keep History a Mystery’, hosted in partnership with AECOM and KPMG • a didgeridoo performance and a market stall run by the Indigenous-owned Kakadu Plum, selling indigenous foods • screening The Apology short film for New South Wales employees • a Welcome to Country and dance performance by the Aboriginal Centre for Performing Arts. Partnerships To support local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, we have committed a minimum of $123,000 in funding (arrangements will be finalised in FY19) to be provided over the next three years. So far, we have signed commitment letters with three individual organisations: • The Aboriginal Centre for the Performance Arts (ACPA) in Queensland • The Clontarf Foundation—exists to improve opportunity for young Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander men to participate meaningfully in society • Bubup Wilam—an Aboriginal Child and Family Centre in Melbourne’s north.
