DELWP recognises the need to build and strengthen our relationship with Traditional Owners and work with Aboriginal communities across Victoria.

We are growing DELWP’s Aboriginal employment to 3% of our workforce. Our Aboriginal Employment Plan sets out how we will do this while achieving lasting change and sustainable jobs for Aboriginal people.

Cultural safety

Cultural safety of Traditional Owners and Aboriginal Victorians, as an underpinning principle of self-determination, is embedded in everything we do. Under the Aboriginal Cultural Safety Framework DELWP is committed to creating a culturally safe workplace, where there is space for culture to live and for spiritual and belief systems to exist.
