RAP organisations across Australia are turning good intentions into positive actions, helping to build higher trust, lower prejudice, and increase pride in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
Reconciliation is no one single issue or agenda. Based on international research and benchmarking, Reconciliation Australia defines and measures reconciliation through five critical dimensions: race relations; equality and equity, institutional integrity; unity; and historical acceptance. All sections of the community—governments, civil society, the private sector, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities—have a role to play to progress these dimensions.
The RAP program provides a framework for organisations to progress reconciliation within their spheres of influence. This Reflect RAP provides Sport Australia a roadmap to lay the foundations for its reconciliation journey. Through implementing a Reflect RAP, Sport Australia will strengthen the governance, relationships and understanding required for effective future RAPs and reconciliation initiatives.
