American Express Global Business Travel (GBT) has put in place its first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
Certified by Reconciliation Australia, the company’s first RAP provides a framework to embrace and support the national reconciliation movement.
The plan outlines Amex GBT’s promise to proactively seek to improve understanding, build long-term relationships and collaborate with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and peoples.
Jo Sully, Amex GBT’s vice president and general manager for APAC, said: “Our employees are from states and territories across Australia. Many live and work in regional communities where they are active and valued contributors to the local economy.
“Adopting this RAP is a natural first step in enriching our understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
“GBT’s RAP is fundamental to establishing respectful relationships and meaningful opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
“Through the RAP, we seek to enrich our contribution and learn how to better embrace reconciliation.”
