Hive acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Custodians of the lands, skies and waterways across Australia. We recognise that sovereignty was never ceded and we are committed to supporting reconciliation initiatives and creating community partnerships to connect with First Nations people’s cultures, countries and communities. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and we acknowledge our Melbourne office is on the traditional lands of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin Nation. We celebrate the diversity, resilience and strength of all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.
Hive has now formalised our commitment to reconciliation through our Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). The RAP is a pivotal step in our recognition of the importance of reconciliation in fostering not only a diverse, respectful and inclusive workplace but more broadly a diverse, respectful and inclusive society. At Hive we strongly believe and take responsibility for reconciliation and our part in contributing towards reconciliation in order for our firm and broader society to achieve improved outcomes.
Our RAP provides a framework for Hive to take practical actions to contribute to the goal of reconciliation. We are excited to move beyond internal policies and work with our community to create long standing community partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and organsiations.
