As a business that works across lands of cultural significance, we have a responsibility to recognise, acknowledge and celebrate the rich and diverse heritage of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
National Reconciliation Week 2022 runs from 27 May to 3 June and is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
This year’s theme is a challenge to us all to Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can Make Change for all.
Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan
We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures, and futures.
In 2021, APP began the process of developing an Innovate Reconciliation Plan (RAP) with Reconciliation Australia which is now in the final approval stages. We hope to share and launch our Innovate RAP by mid 2022.
Implementing our APP Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan will demonstrate our commitment to develop and strengthen relationships, engage staff and stakeholders in the journey that is reconciliation.

About the artwork and artist
In developing our APP Innovate RAP, we commissioned Wiradjuri artist Leticia Quince to create an exclusive and engaging artwork.
"The artwork shares the essences of coming together as a team in the centre, with people from all walks of life — to create, build and share. The focus of the surroundings and use of the thicker lines represents the build environment and projects by The APP group share across the land (cross-hatching). It’s about embracing the three Reconciliation action plan pillars — Respect, Relationships and Opportunities."
