The Gold Coast Titans have launched the latest instalment of the Club’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
Since the club’s inception in 2007, the Titans have had a proud relationship with Indigenous people and the local Yugambeh people.
This plan aims to further embed long-term reconciliation into the Titans culture and business.
The vision for reconciliation is to strengthen connections and relationships with the community and build and increase respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures. This plan continues to acknowledge our proud Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and to demonstrate our commitment to reconciliation to a wider audience, with the overarching aim of closing health and educational gaps for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Titans Chairman Dennis Watt says the Club now moves into the “Stretch” phase with the launch of the new RAP.
“It’s another significant milestone for the Club with the third iteration of the Reconciliation Action Plan,” Watt said.
“It’s been a wonderful collaborative effort across the club and with our supporting partners and great guidance from Reconciliation Australia.
“It recaps on our achievements thus far but also commits us to several actions into the future.
“Rugby League has been at the heart of reconciliation in this area for a hundred years.”
Preston Campbell, former Titans player and part of the RAP working group, says he’s proud to have played a part in the development of the new RAP.
“I’m very happy that the Gold Coast Titans are so committed to the Indigenous community,” Campbell said.
“They (Titans) have always set the bar in terms of the contributions they’re able to make with different groups.
“Basically it is just continuing on the great work that has been done in the past, but if you have something written then people are going to read it and they’re going to see what people are actually doing.
“What people don’t know is the Gold Coast have been doing this way before they had a RAP, this just makes it official.”
