Play a role in protecting Country

Reducing reliance on fossil fuels and protecting the heritage and wildlife of local communities are some of the drivers at the heart of our transition towards renewable energy.

Members of our Reconciliation Engagement Network (REN)

In October 2016, our Reconciliation Engagement Network (REN) formed to recognise, respect and raise awareness about Indigenous history and culture across AGL. This supports the inclusion and recognition of our people who identify as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander.

The Network aims to create a culturally safe and inclusive workplace for our First Nations employees. We celebrate and recognise significant events and dates through coordinated activities across the year.

We promote actions that:

  • Increase awareness and respect for Indigenous culture across AGL
  • Create a safe and inclusive workplace for our Indigenous employees and those who are interested in Indigenous affairs
  • Celebrate and recognise significant Indigenous events and dates through coordinated activities and communications right across the business.

Our aim is to highlight significant dates for our Indigenous communities throughout the year, and offer opportunities for our people to hear from guest speakers.

BlackCard helped develop our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Capability Framework to build the skills, knowledge and behaviours required to improve the cultural understanding of all AGL people.

Over 550 of our people have completed formal courses through cultural learning providers such as Evolve Communities, BlackCard and Arrilla. We hold informal training though yarning circles, webinars, lunch and learns and on-country experiences like the Garma Festival of Traditional Cultures.
