Indigenous Artwork on Diona Hi-vis Shirts

As Diona continues its journey towards reconciliation and building inclusive communities, our Ballarat team were proud to show off our new hi-vis shirts adorned with artwork by Wadawurrung Traditional Owner, Billy-Jay O’Toole. These Indigenous shirts reflect our respect for the cultures and histories of the lands we operate on and embody our commitment to meaningful change and fostering stronger community ties.

Embracing Cultural Heritage

The featured local Aboriginal artwork serves as a daily reminder of our responsibilities and commitments outlined in our Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Our ‘Reflect’ RAP, endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, sets goals aimed at embedding cultural understanding and respect across every part of our business. By showcasing Indigenous art on our uniforms, we’re bringing visibility to our dedication to this cause, celebrating Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, and making a statement about the importance of this journey to our entire team and the communities we serve.

A Step Forward Together

Our initiatives in Ballarat, including the Sewer Build Stage 2 project, are not just about infrastructure development but also about embedding our reconciliation commitments into our daily operations. It’s about making tangible contributions to the communities we work in, honouring our shared histories, and moving forward together towards a future of equal opportunity and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
