Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP)

A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) is a framework for organisations to realise their vision for reconciliation.

RAPs are practical plans of action built on relationships, respect and opportunities. A RAP will support an organisation to work toward creating social change and economic opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.

Reconciliation

RAPs have been designed as a practical support for organisations as they travel the Reconciliation journey. The process for developing a RAP and having it endorsed is led by Reconciliation Australia. You can find extensive information about RAPs, what they mean and how they are developed on the Reconciliation Australia website.

Reconciliation Australia has also developed a free online resource called Share Our Pride which walks you through topics addressing who the First Australians are, what their culture is, shared history, beyond the myths, and how we can all have respectful relationships. We highly recommend that you explore and complete this resource as it is an excellent learning tool.

Our RAP

As an organisation, we have committed to Reconciliation by developing and maintaining a RAP. Currently, the RAP Working Group is drafting the ACM's first RAP.  We will be consulting with members over the coming months to gather feedback about what we currently do well in our relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, how we can improve, and what members would like the organisation to achieve in its first RAP.

If you have any feedback, or ideas for our RAP, please feel free to contact us at any time.
