OUR VISION FOR RECONCILIATION

The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) is committed to reconciliation and an inclusive society that recognises and celebrates Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians.

Our vision is to help improve economic, health and social opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their communities around Australia by accurately counting every Australian and ensuring effective representation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in ABS statistical collections. We will seek to understand, recognise, value and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, culture and communities through building and maintaining strong and mutually beneficial relationships, including as part of statistical collection activity.

The ABS is committed to building a high performing culture and improving our diversity, to ensure our workforce is representative of Australian Society. To support this:

  • we value the opportunity to learn and work with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff to raise awareness and deepen our understanding, connections and knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples culture, traditions and history, and
  • implement strategies and programs to attract, recruit and retain Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the workforce.
