RACQ committed to reconciliation


The Innovate RAP builds on the Club’s Reflect RAP that was released in 2020. It provides RACQ with a blueprint to make further meaningful contributions to reconciliation in Queensland and drive the inclusion of First Nations people over the next two years.

The launch at RACQ’s head office in Eight Miles Plains opened with an official smoking and didgeridoo ceremony and was attended by Councillor for the ward of McGregor Cr Steven Huang, General Manager of ARTIE Steven Page, Aunty Robyn Williams and Aunty Flo Watson, as well as more than 200 RACQ employees.

Officially launching the Club’s Innovate RAP, Group CEO David Carter said the occasion was an important milestone in RACQ’s reconciliation journey.

“As Queensland’s largest Club, we recognise the importance of taking meaningful action to advance reconciliation in our communities and I’m proud to lead an organisation that values this work,” Mr Carter said.

“Relationships, respect and opportunities for First Nations people is a priority for RACQ and while we have made good progress, I recognise there is still much more for our Club to learn and to do, to truly make inroads towards reconciliation.

“We’re well placed to deliver on the commitments outlined in our plan and we look forward to strengthening our relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-indigenous peoples for the benefit of all Queenslanders.”

As part of the launch proceedings, an RACQ patrol vehicle, wrapped in the design of the Innovate RAP, was unveiled as a visual symbol of the Club’s commitment to reconciliation.

RACQ’s Innovate RAP focuses on three key areas:

Relationships – Building cultural awareness and knowledge for RACQ employees.

Respect – Building relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders, communities and organisations.

Opportunities – Developing employment and procurement opportunities for First Nations people and organisations.
