Last night saw the launch of the Dominance Security REFLECT Reconciliation Action Plan which was attended by many high profiled Aboriginal sports people and community representatives. The Dominance REFLECT RAP primarily aims to increase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment in the security industry but is also strongly geared towards promoting economic prosperity and social diversity and inclusion for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples more broadly.
As Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people only represent 1.5% of the total security industry workforce, Dominance has committed to increasing its Aboriginal workforce to 4% of all its staff. To achieve this, Dominance is working with Indigenous Employment Partners (IEP), who will work collaboratively to develop employment strategies to strengthen equity and inclusion in the security workplace.
As a part of it’s commitment Dominance, commissioned Kiewa Austin-Rioli, a proud Gunditjmara and Tiwi Islander Artist, to produce the RAP artwork with Currency Print and Corporate Communications (CPCC), an Indigenous owned and operated print and design business producing the RAP brochures.
The Stafford Brothers Scholarship has been set up to introduce young indigenous people into the security industry and assist them by not only putting them through the Certificate II in Security Operations but also being there for them throughout the licensing process with a view to guaranteed employment with Dominance once they receive their licence.

This year, The Anthony Egan Scholarship was presented by Peter Johnson of Australian Security Industry Association Limited. This year’s recipient is: Tyrah Kickett
