Acknowledgement of country

ANROWS acknowledges the traditional owners of the land across Australia on which we work and live. We pay our respects to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander elders past, present and future; and we value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history, culture and knowledge.

Reconciliation Action Plan

ANROWS's Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) for January 2016 - December 2017 was endorsed by Reconciliation Australia. ANROWS is currently working with Reconciliation Australia to develop its Innovate RAP for 2018 - 2019.

Achieving Reconciliation Australia’s vision of a reconciled, just and equitable Australia depends on organisations like ours, and individuals like us, addressing these inequalities through our daily actions. It also depends on genuine respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and knowledge which we value and embrace. Our actions will be informed by these principles and acknowledgement of the strength, resilience and innovation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across Australia.
