Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan
Power and Water is committed to reconciliation in our workplace and community.
We understand that our power, water, sewerage and gas services impact the lives of Territorians right across 1.3 million square kilometres, including in some of the most remote parts of Australia.
Our role as an essential service provider presents us with a significant opportunity to listen, to learn, to educate and to lead in reconciliation.
Our vision for reconciliation is to be a culturally diverse, modern multi-utility where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples feel respected, safe and recognised as trusted partners now and into the future.
Our 2023-2025 Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan sets out our actions to achieve our vision, and the accountabilities we share.
To ensure we are living the values of our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan, we have been engaging with Traditional Owners, Elders and artists across the Territory to capture stories that highlight the continued connection and importance of power and water, relevant to the land we live and operate on.
The stories and artworks feature in our 2023-2025 Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan.
We extend our thanks to all of the storytellers and artists who have shared their stories with Power and Water.
We will continue to work with Traditional Owners, Elders and the community to build important relationships and support truth telling and education by capturing and sharing power and water stories.
Gaining a deeper understanding of experiences past and present in order to cultivate stronger relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees, customers and community members.
Instilling the importance of respect at every level of our organisation, thereby ensuring that relationships are always fostered through an understanding and appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures.
Maximising the wealth of opportunities that exist for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through Power and Water’s significant operations across the Territory.
Holding ourselves to account through our Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group and Steering Committee to ensure our intentions are translated into actions.
