Reconciliation Action Plan

Reconciliation Action Plan

The Energy and Water Ombudsman Queensland (EWOQ) is committed to fostering a culture of respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples both within our organisation and in the communities we assist across the state.

Our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) formalises our continued commitment to engage, strengthen and maintain our relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

The RAP program provides us with a framework to advance reconciliation within our spheres of influence. It is a roadmap for our reconciliation journey and lays the foundations for future reconciliation initiatives.

Our reconciliation journey

Our reconciliation journey started in January 2014 with the appointment of a dedicated Indigenous officer, and continues through our community outreach program, which has touched communities from Minjerribah (North Stradbroke Island) in the southeast to the Torres Strait Islands in the far north.

Through our reconciliation journey, we are fostering professional and community partnerships to strengthen our connections with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. We strive for our reconciliation journey to have a positive influence across our sector, and for industry to join us in contributing to a better Australia.

Working together towards reconciliation

The Reflect RAP aims to help create opportunities and promote a culture of respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples at EWOQ and in the communities we assist across Queensland.

Our progress towards reconciliation will be tracked through our actions in three key areas: relationships, respect and opportunities.

In late 2019, we will launch our Innovate RAP, which is a two-year plan that we will use to advance reconciliation.
