Fujitsu Australia rolls out 12-month Reconciliation Action Plan

20 Mar 2018

Fujitsu Australia has reached another milestone in its 12-month Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), an initiative that promotes equality for Australia Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander people.

The RAP, launched at the company’s Macquarie Park Head Office, aims to create sustainable opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander focusing on four key areas; relationships, respect, opportunities, tracking, and progress.

CEO of Fujitsu Australia Mike Foster calls the launch of the RAP an important milestone in Fujitsu’s diversity journey.

“The ICT industry at large has been challenged by concerns around diversity and inclusion for some time. Fujitsu has taken a determined approach in acknowledging and adopting a series of initiatives to address these challenges within our industry,” says Foster

“This Reconciliation Action Plan is a further commitment by Fujitsu to drive change not only within our own organisation, but within society.”

“We know that digital technology is transforming business, society and the everyday lives of people.”

“By partnering with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, businesses and communities we will help achieve Fujitsu’s vision of an equitable, prosperous and rewarding digital future.”

“I look forward to new ways to deliver value with our customers, employees and community partners as a result of implementing the actions in this RAP”.

Indigitek is a not-for-profit organisation that supports the growth of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander participation in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The organisation’s co-founder Liam Ridgeway comments on the launch RAP: “It’s important that global ICT enterprises like Fujitsu are able to support the development and growth of Indigenous Australians in STEM.”

“Fujitsu’s RAP demonstrates their commitment to participate in positive and impactful change in this area and we look forward to collaborating with them on their journey”.

Through RAP, Fujitsu Australia promotes its strategy for creating an equitable and sustainable nation which involves the organisation setting key performance deliverables “in regard to finding new ways to deliver value to their customers and community partners as a result of implementing the RAP,” Fujitsu stated at the launch of RAP.

With RAP, Fujitsu Australia plans to do this by working towards three goals:

  • Implement initiatives to assist the employment and opportunities of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
  • Increase Fujitsu Australia’s employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and Fujitsu’s use of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander suppliers in their supply chains, in the delivery of services
  • Improve the relationship, understanding and respect of Fujitsu Australia’s employees with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders.
