Professional Conversation – Reconciliation Action Plans
Jackie Bennett

Join this professional conversation where we will unpack why we’re still talking about Reconciliation and why Reconciliation is so important.

A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) provides a way for organisations to support strong relationships and respect between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians.

At Logan City Council, we recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as Australia's first peoples. We work to support reconciliation and close the gap.

Our first Reconciliation Action Plan

Our first RAP ran from 2015–2017. It gave us 39 actions and 70 deliverables. Of these, 65 deliverables have been completed and/or incorporated into our ongoing business. The remaining 5 deliverables have been carried over into our second RAP.

Our second Reconciliation Action Plan

Our second RAP extends to December 2020 and involves all areas of the organisation.

This RAP is helping us to support and sustain reconciliation across the City of Logan. Through our RAP, we also aim to lead and encourage other local organisations and businesses to start their own reconciliation journey.
