Reconciliation Action Plan
Our commitment to take action
A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) provides a framework for organisations to support the national reconciliation movement. Allens acknowledges a responsibility to contribute to reconciliation, and its importance to both the culture of the firm and the future of Australia.
We have a RAP because it is important to the individuals in the firm, the culture of the firm, the culture of an inclusive and diverse workplace and important to the future of an Australia we are proud to belong to.
The five pillars of our Reconciliation Action Plan
1. Advocate and lead on reconciliation in our profession
Supporting the growth of the legal profession’s engagement in reconciliation issues, through setting examples and encouraging other organisations to make their own commitments to reconciliation.
2 Continue our pro bono commitment
Supporting the development of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities through the firm’s long‑standing commitment to provide pro bono legal advice.
3 Create employment opportunities in our firm and in our community
Encouraging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to thrive through the provision of employment and training opportunities, to support the pathway to meaningful careers.
4. Invest in commercial relationships
Providing opportunities for the firm through supply chain diversity, while supporting the development of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander‑owned businesses, enabling them to thrive.
5. Build cultural capacity in our firm and in our community
Creating opportunities for our people, clients and the broader community to be educated and engaged in the importance of reconciliation.
