AVI Reconciliation Action Plan endorsed

Coinciding with National Reconciliation Week, AVI launched its second Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan.

As we draw towards the end of National Reconciliation Week, AVI is proud to announce the endorsement of our second Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan by Reconciliation Australia.

Echoing the sentiments of Wurundjeri Elder Uncle Ringo Terrick who joined us for the launch event, this Reconciliation Action Plan is not just a document that sits on a shelf, it is a formal and public document that holds us accountable to our commitment to work towards reconciliation and truth-telling.

We believe we can create meaningful change by fundamentally transforming our practices to ensure Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people are not only welcome and respected but also fully empowered to enjoy the same opportunities, justice, and rights as non-Indigenous Australians.
