We are developing an Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) to be formally endorsed by Reconciliation Australia. Our two year Innovate RAP will outline the shared approach Council will take to work alongside Traditional Owners and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to advance reconciliation in our workplace and across the Monash municipality.

Council recognises that everyone has a role in working towards Reconciliation.

We are inviting all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, reconciliation partners, Council staff and Monash community members, to be part of the development of Council’s RAP to ensure the journey we take together is grounded in shared decision-making, fairness, respect and trust.

Reconciliation Australia

Council’s Innovate RAP will be endorsed by Reconciliation Australia and requires a whole-organisation approach to achieve the plan’s purpose, which is to explore, develop and embed strategies to advance reconciliation across Council’s workplace and the Monash municipality.

RAPs serve to create positive cultural change, strengthen relationships and support equity for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Have your say to inform our draft Monash Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan

We'd like to know why reconciliation in Monash is important to you and how we might progress it locally. Your feedback will be considered along with information gathered from Traditional Owners, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, key stakeholders and service providers.
