Developing our first Reconciliation Action Plan

Monday 23 May 2022
Reconciliation Week is an important opportunity to reflect on how AMSA can further reconciliation for the benefit of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.
Reconciliation action plan

We are currently developing our first Reconciliation Plan (RAP) which is an important step in promoting participation and opportunities for First Nations Australians throughout Australia.

According to Reconciliation Australia, RAPs centre on the pillars relationships, respects and opportunities to create real and substantial benefits for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. RAPs aim to increase economic fairness and support Australian First Nations self-determination. 

As this is AMSA’s first RAP, its focus is on the ‘Reflect’ stage of the planning process. Reflect RAPs cover a 18-month period and outline the steps we will take to prepare the agency for reconciliation strategies and programs to be covered in future RAPs. Our Reflect RAP signals our commitment to identifying and developing relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders in order to confirm our vision and scope for reconciliation.

The AMSA Reflect RAP has been lodged with Reconciliation Australia for their review and we look forward to working with them to finalise the plan.

Stay tuned for more details of our RAP launch later in 2022.
