Case Study - Elevate Reconciliation Action Plan

by ABC
The Australian Broadcasting Corporation is Australia's national public broadcaster. The ABC has offices in every Australian state and territory, and employs the equivalent of approximately 4300 full-time employees.

The ABC’s Elevate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) champions initiatives that recognise and embrace Australia’s Indigenous history and cultures. This includes the ABC’s commitment to Indigenous content across its media platforms, strengthening employment and business opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and building closer relationships with Indigenous communities. The Elevate RAP also includes a new commitment to embed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages, voices and names within the ABC’s programs, so that this may become a part of the vocabulary of the nation. The Plan has been operational since July 2019. The ABC is one of only 25 organisations in Australia to be invited by Reconciliation Australia to develop an Elevate RAP, which is the highest form of RAP. The ABC was offered the opportunity to undertake an Elevate RAP because of the significant progress it had made under previous RAPs.
