Update on our 'Innovate' Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)
In early 2019, COORDINARE began working on the first phase of a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP): a document detailing measurable goals we would like to achieve to improve health outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in South Eastern NSW.
Our internal RAP Working Group proudly led this work in consultation with the Board, COORDINARE’s Cultural Advisor, and key stakeholders. In late 2019, Reconciliation Australia officially endorsed our RAP, and our 'Reflect' RAP for 2019-2020(External link) was launched!
We are now in phase two in the reconciliation journey, called the 'Innovate' RAP. The Innovate RAP aims to:
establish the best approach for advancing reconciliation within the organisation
implement reconciliation strategies and initiatives over a period of two years.
We are excited to say that we have submitted the first draft of the Innovate RAP to Reconciliation Australia, and are awaiting their feedback! We will keep you updated on our progress.
In the meantime, you can find out more about the purpose of an Innovate RAP here(External link).
