ARA Indigenous Services team made a huge effort to promote, educate and create awareness on the meaning of ‘National Reconciliation Week’ within the ARA Group as part of the RAP commitments.
This year’s theme is ‘Grounded in Truth: Walk together with Courage’. As an Australian company that operates nationwide, we recognise the importance of making a strong and concerted, contribution to reconciliation in Australia.
This week encourages us to learn more about our shared history, celebrate the oldest living cultures in the world, and explore how we can walk together in courage as we work towards reconciliation.
Various events were held throughout the divisions with many staff attending including special guests Cyril Mundine and Bert Gordon from Tribal Warrior who are mentors/elders in the Redfern Community.
It was great to see how important this week is to build and maintain relationships between Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians.
