KBR Signs MOU with JLB Yaran

KBR has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with JLB Yaran that will further enhance KBR’s engagement with Australian First Nations communities and businesses.

The agreement was signed at the 2022 Indo Pacific Conference in Sydney, Australia. Under the non-binding agreement signed on Gadigal land, and witnessed by First Nations Elder Aunty Mary Doctor, KBR will collaborate with JLB Yaran to help recruit, connect, and engage with First Nations peoples for multiple opportunities in locations across Australia. This
will integrate JLB Yaran into KBR’s wider technical support network. JLB-Yaran is an indigenous and veteran-owned professional service provider with a long history of supporting the defense industry. The JLB-Yaran team has Australian
defense experience, both in and out of uniform, further enhancing their ability to support the Australian Defence Force. The signing of this MoU with JLB Yaran forms part of KBR Australia’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), which the company has been implementing for more than 2 years. The KBR RAP provides a framework upon which KBR can realize its vision for reconciliation and provides practical steps to engage with and respect First Nations organizations and improve cultural understanding throughout KBR Australia.
