Our Reconciliation

Chandler Macleod Group believes that every person, team and organisation has potential, and we know we are in a unique position to help unleash it.

Chandler Macleod Group have been building our approach to reconciliation for several years and in 2017 embarked on a journey with Reconciliation Australia to create our own Reconciliation Action Plan which was endorsed in early 2018. The Chandler Macleod Group Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan is our first step to embedding organisational respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians, building and sustaining trusting relationships with communities, and laying the foundation for delivering real, lasting opportunities for economic participation and independence.

We are determined to increase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander representation in our workforce and are passionate about empowering our clients to do the same. With this in mind, we created Solid Start, a Chandler Macleod Group Initiative aimed at supporting our vision for closing the gap in Indigenous employment.

We are excited at the prospect of working alongside the Aboriginal and Torres Stait Islander people and their communities to have an impact on their lives through opportunities that we often take for granted.

Our Why?

Through our Reconciliation Action Plan, we want to build an environment where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people feel empowered to apply for the jobs they want and where their strengths and skills will be valued.

The Fire that Connects Us

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have a special relationship with fire; it is a place that brings people together as an important part of story-telling and sharing of knowledge.

Chandler Macleod Group recognises this connection and we proudly represent this in our design by displaying the colours of orange and yellow. The fire’s energy ignites and ties a bond between the people and their community.

Our Reconciliation Action Plan journey requires patience to listen, learn and understand the pathway we all must take in keeping the fire burning bright.

About Our Motif

This motif is called Energy Unleashed by Gilimbaa artist, Tarni O'Shea. The motif's fire connects us and ignites our journey with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander individuals, families, communities, and the Chandler Macleod Group in unleashing new opportunities.

We call this journey 'the Fire that Connects Us' and it underpins our Reconciliation Action Plan with Reconciliation Australia.
