More Than a Word. Reconciliation Takes Action.
May 27, 2021 – June 3, 2021
Reconciliation Australia’s theme for 2021 urges the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action. This year also marks Reconciliation Australia's 20th year and almost 3 decades of Australia's formal reconciliation process.
At its heart, reconciliation is about strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, for the benefit of all Australians. Reconciliation is an ongoing journey that reminds us that while generations of Australians have fought hard for meaningful change, future gains are likely to take just as much, if not more, effort. Reconciliation Australia's vision of reconciliation is based and measured on five dimensions: historical acceptance, race relations, equality and equity, institutional integrity, and unity.

Where We Are Now
Last year Avondale began the process of developing a 'Reconciliation Action Plan' and earlier this week the process was recommenced through further discussion with "Reconciliation Australia", who are guiding us in this process. Over the next few months we aim to complete and begin implementing our own Avondale Reconciliation Action Plan. Kevin Petrie
