We at SSE recognise and show respect to Australia’s First Nation peoples, and acknowledge the pain and anger evoked by the historical significance of marking 26 January as a day of celebration. As such, SSE staff have the flexibility to work on that day instead of taking the day as a public holiday.
At SSE, we take time every day to be present and acknowledge First Nations peoples as the traditional custodians of this continent and honour Aboriginal people as the oldest continuing living culture in the world. We are privileged by the richness and diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, innovation, education, and entrepreneurship, and we seek to learn and grow from their many diverse voices and practices.
In 2023, SSE is embracing the opportunity to co-partner, co-design and co-deliver programs with Aboriginal communities across the state of NSW, helping to remove barriers to employment and education for more people across this nation. We know that diverse teams and diverse voices deliver better solutions, create smarter innovations, and nurture more collaborative cultures, and we are committed to doing better to close the gap on systemic inequalities.
SSE is physically located on the lands of the Gadigal People of the Eora Nation, but we service, support and honour with gratitude the lands of all Aboriginal people across New South Wales.
