About the RAP

As a national education services provider, ESA recognises our responsibility to work for national progress in reconciliation. We are proud to join more than 1,000 organisations across Australia in developing a RAP in partnership with Reconciliation Australia.

Reconciliation involves building stronger relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, to benefit all Australians. Our Innovate RAP is an acknowledgement of our commitment to be active in this space.

ESA is committed to working towards reconciliation by building relationships both internally and externally, and raising awareness with our stakeholders to ensure there is a shared understanding and ownership of our RAP within the company. We are committed to fostering respect, finding opportunities for reconciliation, and embedding reconciliation into our governance. We also continue to share and celebrate the positive groundswell of actions and attitudes that foster mutual understanding, respect and collaboration throughout Australia.


RAP artwork and design


Our Innovate RAP's cover artwork is titled ‘A Vision of Change’. It represents ESA's commitment to being seen, being brave and taking action. Of becoming a visionary and taking charge. Of learning, growing and working together to create a better future. This central theme is carried through from the cover image to design elements that echo it throughout the RAP.
