National Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
This year’s theme – More than a word. Reconciliation takes action, urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.
We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation, and in playing our part we collectively build relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, cultures and futures.
Guided by Reconciliation Australia’s Reconciliation Action Plan framework, we are taking a strategic approach to advancing reconciliation in our organisation.
We recently launched our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan.
This plan encourages us to deliver services and other support that respects the cultural rights, values and expectations of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and their communities and identify opportunities to work towards reconciliation right across Uniting.
We thank everyone for their contribution to our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan, particularly the guidance and support provided by the Aboriginal members of our Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group.
Each year events are held across the country to mark National Reconciliation Week.
From awards to webinars, virtual and in-person events, there are many ways you can get involved in National Reconciliation Week 2021.
