QTU launches RAP
The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Education Conference provided the perfect opportunity for the QTU to proudly launch its Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) which sets out 20 deliverable actions that the QTU commits to over the next 12 months.
The RAP encapsulates the Union’s vision for reconciliation, which is for a society that respects, protects, and promotes the rights of all, and in which Aboriginal peoples, Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians live and work together with mutual respect and understanding, free from discrimination and harassment.
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander members, non-Indigenous members, employees of the QTU and Sam Pidgeon, QTU Vice-President and RAP champion were joined at the launch by Alex Shain from Reconciliation Australia, which has endorsed the QTU RAP.
Reconciliation action plans can be endorsed at four levels, reflect, innovate, stretch, or elevate. The QTU’s RAP is a reflect document that identifies organisational commitments to action over a 12 month period. Page 7 of the RAP outlines the QTU’s actions.
The QTU encourages all members to consider developing reconciliation action plans in schools, TAFE colleges and other education contexts. Resources on RAPs specific to schools can be found at the Narragunnawalli (Narra – gunna – walli) website .
