To coincide with Reconciliation Week, Omnicom Media Group (OMG) agencies held all staff events to officially launch their Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). The plan outlines their commitment to creating social change and economic opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in the workplace. 

The RAP, which has been 12 months in preparation, was endorsed by Justin Mohamed, CEO of Reconciliation Australia. Mohamed said “OMG’s RAP involves multiple initiatives to develop cultural learning, cultural protocols and promoting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment. On behalf of Reconciliation Australia, I commend Omnicom Media Group on its inaugural RAP and look forward to following its reconciliation journey.”

PHD RAP Launch

Peter Horgan, CEO, Omnicom Media Group Australia & New Zealand, said at the event, “As part of OMG’s diversity strategy, we are keen to build a strong and productive relationship with Australia’s First People. We have set ourselves employment targets and promote career opportunities to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We want to make a contribution to, and learn from, Australia’s First People and acknowledge their place in our history and culture and their future part in making Australia a proud and successful nation.” 

The events were held at each of the offices of OMD, PHD, Resolution, OMGP and Annalect. nationally, featuring a beautiful and moving ‘Welcome to Country’, smoking ceremony and didgeridoo performance by local Indigenous performers.

All OMG employees will be involved in implementing the RAP and will be learning about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture.
