Achieving reconciliation in Australia 

National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about their shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how to contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

The theme for National Reconciliation Week 2023, Be a Voice for Generations, encouraged all Australians to be a voice for reconciliation in tangible ways in everyday lives – where people live, work and socialize.

Improving societal outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

DXC launched its first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) in 2020, that aims to support self-determination and improve societal outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

DXC’s RAP added a formal framework to its Australian First Nations Program through four main themes, which formed the basis of initiatives from November 2020 to May 2022:

  • Business Partnerships - Developing and maintaining meaningful relationships with First Nations businesses, working jointly with business partners to support each other’s reconciliation journeys
  • Community Engagement - Building ties with community, participating in shared learnings, cultural exchange and co-design of community-building initiatives, consulting on DXC's relationship with lands, waters and communities
  • Education and Career Pathways - Supporting students’ exposure to technology through all levels of their education, building on existing pathways and supporting mechanisms into ICT careers
  • Culture, Inclusion and Diversity -  Learning about and celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and providing a culturally safe and supportive work environment for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples

Building Indigenous business partnerships

The DXC First Nations Program focuses on building Indigenous business partnerships and increasing education and employment opportunities for First Nations people.

The Program supports DXC customers’ aspirations too - such as broadening their cultural outlook, accessing new and diverse talent, and increasing their Indigenous business spend to support communities.
