Uniting is promising not to keep its reconciliation work "secret", but instead freely share its journey towards ensuring Aboriginal people are given a greater voice in the future.
As the community services provider launched its Reconciliation Action Plan at Dubbo on Thursday, executive director Tracey Burton encouraged other organisations to "leverage" from it and follow a similar path.
Uniting's plan includes a Cultural Inclusion Program and a commitment to lifting the Aboriginal staff representation from 3 per cent across NSW and the ACT to 5 per cent.
Ms Burton, who travelled to Dubbo for the launch, said the reconciliation plan would be shared in the hope it would have an impact beyond Uniting.
"I think we'll be talking loudly about our Reconciliation Action Plan in any conferences, anywhere we get the opportunity," she said.
"And we'll freely share what we've done so other organisations can leverage off our work.
"We won't be keeping it secret, we'll be telling everyone about it and encouraging them.
We won't be keeping it secret, well be telling everyone about it and encouraging them.Uniting executive director Tracey Burton
"Because the more people who get involved, and actually put tangible actions in place to make change, whether it's in their employment practices or whether it's in the services they deliver, whether it's in their governance processes, where they're making sure the voice of Aboriginal people is being heard, any organisation can actually run with this, it's doable."
One plank of Uniting's plan is its Cultural Inclusion Program, which aims to embed culture through family support work, connect young people to their community and identity, as well as educating non-Aboriginal caseworkers and government partners in how to better connect with Aboriginal clients.
Uniting head of western NSW region Pam Wells told of the program's importance.
"Jamie McLennan and Adam Wiseman lead [the program], they work with young people in areas like juvenile justice, education and Uniting clients to embed culture through the work they do and strengthen connection with their identity," she said.
Uniting has about 9000 staff and 2000 volunteers, and close to 3 per cent of its staff identify as Aboriginal, it reports.
The western region bucks the trend, with about 40 per cent of Uniting staff identifying as Aboriginal.
