Albany Port Celebrates Reconciliation, Heritage, Community and Sustainability
- Published: 9 June 2020
Southern Ports is proud to be sponsoring two young people from the Great Southern to participate in the March 2021 Leeuwin sailing program.
With the Southern Ports Reconciliation Action Plan in mind, Albany staff have ensured at least of one of these positions will be for a young Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander person, while the other position will be for an at risk or disadvantaged youth, in line with the sustainability strategy’s community theme.
Albany Regional Manager Gary Crockford said it was great to see staff embracing innovative thinking.
“It’s fantastic to see the linkage of multiple components of our strategic direction – strong regional ports, strong regions – for the benefit of all people within our community," Mr Crockford said.
The staff said this was a fitting and unique opportunity to link our maritime industry, sponsorship program, sustainability strategy and Reconciliation Action Plan, with the sponsorship request being received during Reconciliation Week.
Southern Ports would like to especially acknowledge the Menang People, Boodja and our shared, deep connection to our port, country and community.
