QBE Australia acknowledges and pays its respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Peoples of Australia, whose ancestral lands and waters we work and live on throughout Australia.
QBE aims to establish a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects the diversity of our customers and the communities we work within. We are committed to building significant and long-standing partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and organisations. QBE is proud to have forged strong relationships with several Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations, including:
- Swans sponsorship
- GO Foundation
Our RAP provides the opportunity and vehicle to strengthen the reach and impact of each of these partnerships by ensuring our commitments are aligned to empowering Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and peoples and by creating long-lasting change.
The QBE Foundation
Through our major corporate responsibility initiative, the QBE Foundation makes it possible for the communities in which we operate to develop, grow and progress. QBE’s corporate responsibility mirrors our insurance role in the community where we are uniquely placed to assist people when they find themselves in need through accident or misadventure.
The Foundation has a simple vision; to help people overcome disadvantage, strengthen their abilities and live more independently, successfully and productively. The Foundation strives to support women and men, both the young and old, to overcome disadvantage and expand on their abilities.
The Foundation commits to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities via partnerships with charity organisations that provide a large array of tailored support depending upon community needs.
