  • Develop RAP resource space on our intranet;
  • Organise National Reconciliation Week and NAIDOC Week events to engage all RFDS Victoria staff, and provide opportunities for staff to engage in external NRW and NAODOC Week events;
  • Review all current anti-discriminatory policies and ELMO modules;
  • Ensure consistent use of RFDS cultural protocols by staff;
  • Ensure all RFDS offices and bases display Acknowledgement of Country signs and flags;
