SBS's Reconciliation Action Plan
SBS is committed to supporting national efforts to close the gap and increase understanding between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and the wider Australian community.
The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) supports SBS’s business plan, with practical actions that build respectful relationships, create opportunities with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and drive SBS’s contribution to reconciliation.
In late 2021, SBS was invited by Reconciliation Australia to participate as an Elevate RAP partner, with the next iteration of the SBS RAP (RAP 5) due to launch in mid-2022.
Elevate plans are the most advanced form of RAP and are reserved for organisations with a proven track record of embedding effective RAP initiatives. As an Elevate RAP partner, SBS will actively champion initiatives to empower Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and create societal change. Our plan will also be subject to a greater degree of transparency and accountability through independent assessment of our activities, as required of Elevate partners.
The invitation for SBS to participate as an Elevate partner is a significant affirmation of our achievements to date and the potential impact of our proposed leadership project.
Reconciliation Film Club
SBS, NITV and Reconciliation Australia proudly partnered together for the Reconciliation Film Club, an online platform that supports organisations to host screenings of a curated selection of Indigenous documentaries from Australia's leading Indigenous film makers. Screenings are an opportunity to bring people together to develop a deeper understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives, histories and cultures, to ignite conversation and spark change. It’s also a great platform to engage staff more actively in an organisation’s RAP plan.
