As part of our focus on diversity and inclusion at Orontide, we have commenced the Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) process for our business.
With some of our larger clients leading the way, we believe this will help us to deliver on our commitment to contributing to a strong and sustainable future for the communities in which we operate.
We are very aware of the importance of embracing an inclusive workforce culture that supports, values and respects Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees.
Our RAP serves as a documented plan that outlines the Orontide vision and the steps we will take as a company to achieve this.
As part of this process, we have purchased an original art piece which will be incorporated into our concept design and marketing activities. The artwork will also be proudly displayed in our Corporate office for all to enjoy.
Caitlin Walke, our HR Operations Manager, had the pleasure of picking up the new artwork during a trip to our Port Hedland site. The piece, titled Whirlpool, was painted by artist and Noongar Martu Annabella Flatt, from Spinifex Hill Studio.
‘When I paint it takes my worries away. It takes the beauty out from within me to put on canvas, so that the world can see I’m a beautiful person within.’ Martu says in her artist profile.
