The Institute has a steadfast commitment in participating in National Reconciliation Week and we are proud to present our event Reconciliation Conversations 2022. We are aware that reconciliation must be embodied both in our psyche and actions, and through this will help support our country by culminating relationships of mutual respect and goodwill between the Australian community and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The theme for this year “Be Brave. Make Change.” is a challenge to all individuals to face the unresolved issue of reconciliation. We implore everyone to be brave and incorporate vital actions in their daily routine so that we can make change for current and future generations.
