The City is taking its next steps in Reconciliation by developing a Reconciliation Strategy.
The City’s first Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) was completed in 2019. Staff across the City have been working to progress a range of actions that have contributed to positive outcomes across the three reconciliation themes: relationships, respect and opportunity.
Some of these achievements include:
- The development of strong relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations including Sister Kate's Home Kids Aboriginal Corporation, Langford Aboriginal Association and Beananing Kwuurt Institute.
- The continual delivery of annual NAIDOC and Reconciliation Week events.
- The integration of Noongar language and cultural experiences across a range of community programming i.e. Rhymes by the River, Noongar language classes.
- Noongar naming across City building’s meeting rooms and the installation of door wraps featuring artworks commissioned from Sister Kate's Home Kids Aboriginal Corporation.
- Installation of acknowledgement plaques on the exterior of City buildings.
- Employment of an Aboriginal Engagement Officer.
