ADG as a company is currently in the process of developing a ‘Reflect’ Reconciliation Action Plan, with an emphasis on scoping and developing relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders, while deciding on a vision for reconciliation and exploring ADG’s sphere of influence. With the endeavour to continually develop our reconciliation commitments, ADG plans to address the supply of the required professional services skills and knowledge from graduating First Nations Australian engineers. ADG is addressing this issue and the potential for employment nationally through ongoing industry engagement and graduate program support.
