Our journey with reconciliation

In 2020 we started our journey with reconciliation and set out to increase awareness and respect for First Nations cultures with our first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). 

For more than 50,000 years, Australia’s First Peoples have cared for our land and embodied resilience and innovation. At UniSuper, we have an opportunity to learn from the wisdom, cultures, and customs of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and to uplift their engagement with their super.  

We recently launched our second RAP which builds on the work we achieved in our first. It also focuses on opportunities to empower and strengthen relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and engage our staff and stakeholders in reconciliation.  

UniSuper supports reconciliation with First Nations Peoples. We want UniSuper to be an environment where all our partners and employees feel included and empowered to share their individual perspectives. 

We look forward to working in partnership with First Nations organisations and communities to bring our RAP to life and deliver on our purpose to engage with and create better retirement outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples, and for all Australians.

Financial wellbeing webcast

We have a dedicated webcast to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members with financial knowledge. It focuses on financial wellbeing, the importance of developing a healthy relationship with money and tools to help plan for the future.

The presentation was developed in partnership with our Indigenous consultant, to ensure it’s relevant and culturally appropriate.
