Advocacy in Action - National Reconciliation Week Working Group Meeting

The purpose of the meeting was to begin the planning and preparation for National Reconciliation Week (NRW) 2020. NRW 2019 was the largest-scale activation to date, so it provided many insights into how best to plan and coordinate the event in the future. The National Reconciliation Week Breakfast increased from 250 attendees in 2018 to 1281 in 2019, and Reconciliation WA hopes to continue along this path of growing engagement.

The working group meeting involved the sharing of ideas and a lot of deep listening. Following recommendations from the 2019 Debrief Report and the Survey Results, the group built a foundation of ideas that will be further developed in coming meetings. One objective that stood out was the need to encourage supporters to engage in reconciliation activities throughout the year, not just during Reconciliation Week.

Attending the meeting was a privilege for Alice, and the Committee is looking forward to continuing their strong support of Reconciliation WA. As a part of our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) we pledge our ongoing commitment to reconciliation and embedding these processes within our organisation. Download our RAP here.
