A Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development reference group will develop the organisation’s inaugural Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), which will set out practical actions to support and advance reconciliation.
Gascoyne Development Commission is extremely proud to be represented in the group by Executive Assistant and Aboriginal Economic Development Officer, Carleen Ryder.
The group’s work comes as we celebrate and build on the respectful relationships shared by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and other Australians as part of National Reconciliation Week, which began today.
With this year’s theme being ‘Grounded in truth. Walk together with courage’, it is a time to learn about our shared histories, cultures and achievements and explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
