Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan Oct 2017-Oct 2019

The Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan is an integral part of our strategic plan and is endorsed by Reconciliation Australia. It contains a range of practical activities to build stronger relationships and greater respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians. It coordinates our actions and holds us accountable for improving the way we work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and businesses.

The plan forms a public commitment to improving the way we engage and work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples – as clients, colleagues and communities.

Our second Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan has an even stronger focus on building respectful relationships. It explores how Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ views and voices can be heard across all levels of our organisation and services.

We will also be doing more to increase cultural learning opportunities for all staff, providing tailored information and support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employees and volunteers, and will continue to review our core service delivery models to be progressively more culturally inclusive.

Reconciliation describes the path we must take to realise a future where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and other Australians stand together as equals. By walking this path, we have the opportunity to contribute to realising the mission and values of Churches of Christ in Queensland.
