The Gnarla Biddi (Our Pathways) Strategy is our long-term commitment to embed genuine engagement with the Aboriginal community across our program of works.
In December 2018, the strategy was endorsed by the Whadjuk and Gnaala Karla Booja Working Parties and renamed ‘Gnarla Biddi’ to reflect the ongoing pathways and connections the projects are creating throughout Perth.
Read the Gnarla Biddi Strategy and the Gnarla Biddi Strategy Summary.
The Gnarla Biddi Strategy is supported by a framework of five engagement streams, which allow for cultural, business, job and land access outcomes for the Aboriginal community. The streams are:
- Noongar cultural recognition;
- Noongar cultural input into place making;
- Aboriginal procurement;
- Aboriginal employment; and
- Land access and sites management.
If you are a registered Aboriginal business, or more than 50 per cent Aboriginal-owned, we encourage you to complete our Construction Business Register to have your business listed as interested in METRONET work opportunities.
