Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan
Autism Queensland acknowledges the importance and value of the reconciliation journey with Traditional Custodians and Owners of all the lands and waters on which we live and work.
We acknowledge the wisdom of Elders past and extend our respect for the valuable contributions of Elders present and those emerging leaders who willingly share cultural knowledge.
Our teams recognise the significance of connections between country and culture for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as we walk together toward participation, opportunity, and choice.
The Autism Queensland Executive Leadership team and Board of Directors recognise the importance and value of developing and implementing a RAP to support an increased understanding of sincere reconciliation across the organisation.
The development of a Reflect RAP has enabled staff across the organisation to participate in conversations that initially looked backwards in order to formulate the most culturally appropriate pathways for continued reconciliation into the future.
One of the drivers in the development of a Reflect RAP is to design a consultative framework to ensure that consideration of cultural needs across all services delivery is informed and guided by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Autism Queensland recognises the importance of applying cultural knowledge in every-day practice promotes cultural safety.
The Autism Queensland RAP implementation plan will provide the roadmap for the ongoing journey toward cultural maturity.
