Tambla acknowledges the Traditional Owners of Country throughout Australia and recognises the continuing connection to lands, waters, and communities. We pay our respect to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures; and to Elders both past, present, and emerging.
Tambla is committed to walking alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to connect, learn and create sustainable opportunities in the communities in which we live and operate.
We are working toward a future where all cultures are respectfully recognised as central to a sustainable Australia.
“Our second RAP is expanding our own reconciliation journey and builds on the foundation we laid with our first RAP last year.
While we achieved a lot for a small business in 2022, we have aspirations to achieve much more. Throughout the year ahead we will be focusing our efforts on increasing the positive impact that our reconciliation activities can bring.”
Chief Operating Officer at Tambla and proud Gamilaraay man with family connections to traditional country.
Tambla believes that we can make a valuable contribution to supporting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander economic and social outcomes through procurement and employment initiatives.
We believe this RAP will guide and support us to build our knowledge of and respect for Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures and help us advocate within our sphere of influence.
We look forward to strengthening our relationships with and opportunities for Australia’s First Peoples, both within our organisation and externally, building on what is already a good foundation in a culturally safe workplace.
Our RAP has been developed from a cross functional RAP working group (RWG) that is comprised of employees from different areas of our business, who themselves are a diverse group.
Baayanya is from the Dunghutti language and belongs to the Yuin–Kuric language family. Baayanya means to release, to let go, to trust. When we trust in people and in our connection with others, growth happens.
Dunghutti are first nations people from the Macleay Valley of northern New South Wales.
Baayanya shows how Tambla connects innovative solutions to people and business that help create more time, growth and trust. Together we connect in a meeting place where trust is formed that spans between company and client. To create flow and alignment, we first have to let go and trust.
Brad Hore competed in two Olympics as a Flyweight Boxer at the Sydney 2000 and Athens 2004 Olympics. As an athlete Brad competed as an amateur and professional Boxer at an international level for over 25 years.
Sport contributed to his passion for community and with the support of his family and community he was able to advance his career, but nothing ever came close to coming home to country.
Brad has worked in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health for over 10 years, advancing and encouraging his people through closing the gap initiatives, sporting involvements and local community projects. He is a big advocate for mental health and regularly comments on how returning home to country can be a very healing experience.
Brad’s Indigenous identity is a credit to his grandmother and mother, both Dunghutti women, who lead the way to never giving up and giving back to their people.
