Reconciliation Action Plan

HESTA acknowledges Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the Traditional Custodians of all Lands on which we come together. At HESTA, we know that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures enrich this nation and we pay our respects to Elders, past and present.

Our vision for reconciliation

We're committed to building community partnerships grounded in respect.

We're working to increase confidence and choice in retirement for all members including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

We'll advocate for equity outcomes between non-Aboriginal and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

HESTA supports the Uluru Statement From The Heart, an invitation to Australia and the Australian people.

We recognise the Uluru Statement as a historic mandate for substantive constitutional change and structural reform.

We hear and support the call for the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution and for a referendum to achieve this as a national priority.

We were the first industry super fund to implement a RAP, using the Reflect model to help us chart the best path to stronger partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

And now, we're building on the work we've done so far with our Innovate RAP.*


*In early 2019 HESTA was granted a one year extension to our Innovate RAP. This means our current RAP will stay in place until September 2020.
