We’re incredibly proud to share that Georgiou’s third Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan has now been finalised and endorsed by Reconciliation Australia.


Georgiou’s third Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), featuring artwork by Marcia McGuire, a Whadjuk, Ballardong, Yued Noongar and Buddimaya Yamatji Aboriginal Woman from Perth, has now been finalised and endorsed by Reconciliation Australia.

Our vision for reconciliation is to work hand-in-hand with First Nations peoples, businesses and communities to enhance employment and training opportunities, increase our team’s understanding of the importance of reconciliation and forge strong, enduring relationships that promote recognition and respect, and ultimately, ‘walk together as equals.’

Georgiou’s Chief Executive Officer, Gary Georgiou commented, “Every Reconciliation Action Plan developed by Georgiou Group reiterates our commitment to walking together as equals. Our RAP is always more than just actions; it’s behaviours, it’s embedded processes and it’s a clear intention to continue our reconciliation journey. We’ve come a long way, but we are certainly not done yet.”

Georgiou’s 2024-2026 RAP aims to build on earlier RAPs by:

  • Taking our lessons learnt and improving our engagement with the First Nations communities
  • Supporting and mentoring emerging First Nations businesses to become long-term partners to industry
  • Growing sustainable careers for First Nations peoples across both professional and construction roles
  • Promoting a culture of awareness and respect for First Nations cultures across the business, bringing all levels of our team on the journey for reconciliation, where actions become business as usual and we are one step closer to reconciliation

This RAP also celebrates the incredible journey we’ve been on and demonstrates how we ensure social and economic outcomes for First Nations people are achieved on our projects. As opposed to simply setting and recording target numbers, Georgiou’s intent is to incorporate First Nations businesses and people into everything we do.

Georgiou’s RAP Champion and General Manager Engineering in Western Australia, Simon Welfare, has played a key role in driving Indigenous engagement and ensuring we continuously gain momentum in this space. As we launch this RAP, Simon has shared his immense pride in what we’ve been able to achieve, “Our team has a genuine passion and drive to make a difference in the lives and careers of Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people. I commend every team member who has embraced our commitment to Indigenous communities across Australia, including of course, my own teams who have brought to life our reconciliation vision on projects such as Fitzroy Bridge Alliance, Tonkin Gap Alliance and Leach Welshpool Alliance.”

With operations across four Australian states or Territories, Georgiou’s sphere of influence extends past our employees and shareholders, to our joint venture and alliance partners, our subcontractors and suppliers and the communities in which we work. Creating sustainable success in the journey to reconciliation relies on our teams and networks adopting our reconciliation vision and working together to bring it to life.

“This powerful document reinforces our long-term commitment to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, businesses and communities and provides a guide to ensure our people and partners can create unique and genuine opportunities for tangible outcomes and real change,” said Georgiou’s Learning & Indigenous Engagement Manager and RAP Committee Member, Jason Stern.
