Social Responsibility

Volunteering 

Juno Consulting 

Throughout the year, colleagues from sites around Australia volunteered their time to support long-term unemployed people in preparing for job interviews through Juno Consulting. Colleagues displayed their generosity of spirit by conducting ‘mock’ interviews over video conferencing to increase participants’ interview skills and their comfort with the interview process. 

Clean Up Australia Day 

In between periods of restriction, a number of the Fund’s Sustainability & Community Group volunteers joined with colleagues to gather landfill and recyclable materials, giving shared areas a clean up and helping to conserve the environment for flora and fauna.

 

 

Reconciliation 

National Reconciliation Week 

AustralianSuper’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) Working Group invited all colleagues to connect with Australia’s history and the cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples through a number of National Reconciliation Week activities. The activities included a virtual museum tour, sourcing First Nations suppliers and a special livestream event with a presentation from Thomas Mayor, a Torres Strait Islander author and the man who carried the Uluru Statement from the Heart around Australia. 

NAIDOC Week 

During NAIDOC week, AustralianSuper celebrated the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. Colleagues were invited to a virtual tour of Uluru and Kata Tjuta National Park, a virtual screening and group discussion of the critically acclaimed film In My Blood It Runs and First Nations suppliers were celebrated and shared.
