Toll has worked with and alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples throughout our long and proud history.
The release of Toll’s 2020-2022 Reconciliation Action Plan formally recognises the part that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have played in our business, as employees, customers, suppliers and communities throughout our history.
At Toll, we recognise that the nature of our business means that we play an important role towards a reconciled Australia. Every day, our people travel across the lands of many different Traditional Owners and the diverse nature of our work means that we can positively influence the outcomes for these communities.
“Toll is committed to working towards an equal and respectful future for the First Peoples of this land. Showing respect, working towards an understanding of culture and histories, acknowledging injustices and providing opportunities is an important step. Toll is proud to be on this journey and our Reconciliation Action Plan is our pubic commitment to making a valuable contribution towards a reconciled Australia,” said Peter Stokes, President Global Logistics.
Toll’s vision for reconciliation in Australia is one that understands, embraces and celebrates a variety of cultures. As a national and international company, we want to ensure that our business reflects the values of inclusion and diversity.
Some of the upcoming Initiatives include Aboriginal Traineeships, introducing new indigenous suppliers, participating in NAIDOC week, organising cultural awareness training and various community engagement activities.
Toll recently partnered with the Graham Polly Farmer Foundation who offer academic enrichment programs to empower Aboriginal students to complete school and move into successful post school pathways.
