The City formally launched its first RAP in May, having worked alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for 14 months to develop it.

Chair of Commissioners Eric Lumsden said the framework consists of building on the foundations of respect and opportunity to increase relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

“As a visual statement of commitment towards reconciliation, Aboriginal flag pins are now available for staff to wear,” Commissioner Lumsden said.

“The City has worked hard to ensure all staff have had access to Cultural Awareness Training, allowing them to make an informed decision about demonstrating their commitment towards reconciliation, and the strong statement of support the flag pins represent.

“Importantly, the decision to source and provide the Aboriginal flag pins came after feedback from staff who wanted a way to acknowledge Aboriginal culture and celebrate the presence of Aboriginal people in the City’s community.”
