Our vision for Reconciliation
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land on which we work and live and pay respect to Elders past, present and emerging.
Our vision for reconciliation is grounded in our values of teamwork, sustainability, and authenticity to build a just and equitable Australia and a shared prideful and purposeful national identity for all.
Teamwork: We commit to connecting with our staff, partners, like-minded organisations, and the communities we live and work in for the betterment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. To grow our understanding of how we can support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities, to create opportunity and equity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Sustainability: We commit to ethically growing sustainable partnerships and processes, and removing barriers and obstacles, to create long-term opportunities, beneficial programs, and culturally appropriate and safe policies that support present and future Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff.
Authenticity: We commit to acting with integrity, listening with respect, encouraging Truth-telling and inviting all voices to the table, acknowledging, and learning from our mistakes, and showing care and support for each other to grow and succeed in an inclusive and respectful environment.Read our six month RAP Progress Report Read our Reconciliation Action Plan here Download a copy of our reconciliation action plan here
In 2019, Trident engaged renowned Aboriginal artist Sid Domic to create Trident’s RAP artwork.

- Animal Footprints: We all walk on the same land.
- Circles: Organisation and community link.
- Aboriginal/Torres Strait Islander Culture: The Spiritual Elements: Dhari – Distinctive head piece for dance of Torres Strait Islands
In celebration of National Reconciliation Week 2023, we have launched our very own Acknowledgement of Country video, with thanks to many staff around our network who volunteered to participate to show respect for our Traditional Owners on behalf of Trident.
We are committed to developing and maintaining strong links with the community and supporting organisations making a difference to the lives of others. With our diverse and dispersed workforce, we encourage our team members to support and participate in local community activities and join with our partners in sponsoring regional organisations.

I’ll be raising crucial funds that help give those facing blood cancer all the support and information they need while driving breakthrough research projects discovering better ways to diagnose and treat blood cancer,” Ellen says.
