Flight Centre commits to two-year reconciliation journey

FCTG managing director James Kavanagh has announced a new Reconciliation Action Plan.

Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) has launched its inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) following National Apology Day.

Endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, FCTG’s Innovate RAP outlines a tangible commitment to specific deliverables over a two-year period.

“We hope that this Reconciliation Action Plan and the actions that we have committed to as part of it will provide our people and our customers with greater knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and traditions,” FCTG managing director James Kavanagh said.

“We also hope that we’ll be able to continue to expand the education and employment opportunities available to First Nations communities and young people through expanding our partnership and supplier relationships with those organisations that may be on a similar path.”

Reconciliation Australia CEO Karen Mundine said FCTG had joined a strong network of more than 1,100 corporate, government, and not-for-profit organisations.

“Implementing an Innovate RAP signals FCTG’s readiness to develop and strengthen relationships, engage staff and stakeholders in reconciliation, and pilot innovative strategies to ensure effective outcomes,” Mundine said.
