2021 RAP Impact report


The 2021 RAP Impact report marks 15 years of of the RAP program, demonstrating how far we have come.

Reporting on information drawn from our RAP Impact Measurement Questionnaire, collected  from 1,134 RAP organisations, the 2021 RAP Impact report sets out to demonstrate the extraordinary impact of the RAP network’s activity in the 2021 financial year.

For the first time, this report includes results from the Leadership Survey; a new research tool that takes a snapshot of perceptions and attitudes on reconciliation within Stretch and Elevate RAP partners. Surveying 8,192 employees from 24 organisations, the pilot Leadership Survey sets the benchmark for continued study on the partners at the forefront of the RAP network.

Findings include: 

  • Close to 4 million people now either work or study in a RAP organisation
  • Over $2 billion worth of goods and services spent with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-owned businesses
  • 88 per cent of employees in Stretch and Elevate organisations believe their organisation has a clear public stance against racism
  • 47 per cent of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees in Stretch and Elevate organisations believe their workplace is welcoming and respectful for new First Nations employees
