In recognition of the deep history and culture of this Island Lutrawita, Richmond Futures would like to acknowledge and pay our respects to all Tasmanian Aboriginal people and acknowledge our respect for their culture and identity which has been bound up with the Land, Waterways and Sky for generations. We would also like to pay our respects to Elders, past and present for they hold the memories, knowledge, culture and hopes of Aboriginal Tasmania.

Richmond Futures is committed to continuously building an inclusive and safe organisational culture, where people can bring their whole (authentic and true) self. Diverse experiences, ways of knowing, thinking and working styles are valued, encouraged and respected because we recognise that expertise and knowledge comes in various forms. We work in solidarity with one another to create a workplace where everybody can belong, connect and succeed in their role. We do this by courageously sharing our different perspectives, radically listening, being open to reflection and change, and learning from each other.
