27th May 2021
Today is the start of National Reconciliation Week for 2021. The dates for NRW remain the same each year; 27 May to 3 June. These dates commemorate two significant milestones in Australia’s reconciliation journey — the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.
The theme for this year is ‘More than a word. Reconciliation Takes Action’. This theme calls on us to not just speak about reconciliation but implement ways of embedding it into our way of life. There are more details around this at: https://nrw.reconciliation.org.au/
Acknowledging that there is area to improve upon on the road to reconciliation, IPC has committed to reconciliation in our Reconciliation Action Plan which outlines Actions we have identified in addressing over the next 12 months.
