The West Coast Eagles is committed to promoting awareness and understanding of diversity through inclusion and support of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. In 2014 the Club developed a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to demonstrate this commitment. The development of the RAP involved the review of all existing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander relations commitments, the formal establishment of a representative RAP working group, collaborative and consultative engagement of staff across our organisation, including Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff and other key community and corporate stakeholders.

Our club’s second Reconciliation Action Plan from May 2015-May 2017 was developed in partnership with the Wirrpanda Foundation. This Reconciliation Action Plan was built on the solid foundation of the inaugural plan, with input and feedback from the Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group and Wirrpanda Foundation staff to extend our commitment to Reconciliation.

More recently, the West Coast Eagles and the Wirrpanda Foundation moved to implement a ‘Stretch’ Reconciliation Action Plan that further amplified our commitment to the reconciliation movement.

In partnership with the Wirrpanda Foundation and BHP, the Club actively celebrates AFL Sir Doug Nicholls Round, which is held over two rounds of the season each year.
