Over the past nine months, NACC’s RAP Working group have been constructing, consulting, and reviewing our new ‘Innovate’ Reconciliation Action Plan! It is now approved by Reconciliation Australia and is available to be viewed on our website
Meaningful engagement with First Nations peoples has been a core focus at NACC NRM for many years. In commencing this ‘Innovate’ Reconciliaiton Action Plan, we are proud of our sustained relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and businesses across the Northern Agricultural Region of WA.
We established a RAP working group in 2021, members of which are encouraged to champion the implementation of the RAP within the office and beyond. This working group was comprised of five NACCers who each put their hands up and volunteered their time to contribute to the RAP!
Through reconciliation, NACC NRM seeks to continually engage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and recognise the unique skills that Traditional Owners hold in conservation actions. We strive for advanced co-design and empowerment of partners to develop reconciliation activities, demonstrating a change from the previous RAP actions.
You may notice the stunning artwork that is threaded throughout our RAP. This is the work of Acacia Collard – a Badimia
Yamatji – Balladong Noongar artist we have previously collaborated with! Acacia effortlessly translated a vision into a masterpiece and through her art, conveyed our RAP’s ideals of innovation, working together, and connection to Country.
