Inghams launches its Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan

As Aussies commemorate National Reconciliation Week, which is observed as a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements, and to explore how people can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia, Inghams has launched its Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan to support inclusion, equity and diversity.

Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director Andrew Reeves said at the launch in South Australia, “We have an inclusion, equity and diversity framework which sets the foundations to ensure we’re fostering an inclusive and constructive culture so that our people feel they can bring their best selves to work and thrive personally and professionally.

“A key goal for Inghams has been the launch and implementation of a Reconciliation Action Plan, to support greater opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and I am proud to say we are making good on that commitment today.

“We have a range of initiatives underway to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our business and in the community. This includes sponsoring CareerTrackers and supporting university students in our business. We also provide two First Nations scholarships through NIDA to encourage increased Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representation in the arts.

“With our national presence, we also have wonderful opportunities to do more going forward, for example, by exploring opportunities to include Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses in our supply chain, which for every $1 can generate $4.41 of social return. It becomes a very powerful agent for change when your investment can deliver four times the value,” Reeves said.

Inghams said it is committed to supporting First Nations individuals with meaningful and sustainable actions that foster inclusion and equity.
