The department’s reconciliation vision is to understand, value and engage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples’ innovations, knowledge and culture; to strengthen our organisation’s cultural capabilities; and to improve Australia’s economic and social opportunities with Australia’s First Peoples.
Our vision will deliver programs, policies and services that support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and businesses to participate and benefit from Australia’s economic growth and job creation. Through this, we will contribute to the wellbeing of Australia’s First Peoples and their communities. We will work to provide mutually beneficial opportunities for our First Peoples, organisations and communities to share in economic development and social inclusion, as set out in our Corporate Plan.
Our reconciliation vision supports a workforce with opportunities and career pathways for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples where they feel empowered, ensuring that the department and broader community can benefit from the knowledge and experience of Australia’s First Peoples.
