Introduction

Girvan Waugh’s commitment to equality and diversity in the workplace involves a positive approach to Indigenous participation, whereby we seek to promote cultural recognition, employment opportunities, education and training for Indigenous people and their communities.

By engaging positively with Indigenous communities, we will build awareness and understanding within our workforce of the Indigenous culture and challenges in the regions we work. This approach aims to facilitate viable employment, career development and business opportunities in an environment that is supportive and inclusive for Indigenous people.

By having an open approach to the indigenous cultural concerns of the region, we will foster strong, rewarding and respectful relationships with Indigenous people and their communities, will be a step in the right direction to increase indigenous participation on projects benefiting the all stakeholders.
