Reconciliation Action Plan launch
On 30 May 2019, the ACO launched its Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan. Wurundjeri Elder Uncle Colin Hunter performed a Welcome to Country ceremony, followed by a performance from the Djirri Djirri Dance Group. Kelvin Rogers, was also present to speak about his experiences as an artist and a Yorta Yorta man and to unveil his striking artwork ‘Journey Down The Murray’.
The ACO commits to implementing practical actions which will strengthen current relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, build new partnerships, strengthen the cultural competency of its workforce, build the cultural safety of the organisation and create employment opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The Innovate RAP has been developed collaboratively to guide us in walking with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities towards providing equitable and appropriate eye care services.
