Today marks the start of National Reconciliation Week. This year’s theme for Reconciliation week is ‘More than a word. Reconciliation takes action’. This theme urges braver and more impactful actions towards Reconciliation.
Hundreds of people attended the ‘Bunbury Reconciliation 2021 Bridge Walk’ for National Sorry Day on May 26, 2021 .
The crowd walked from the Wardandi Boodja Sculpture together to express support for meaningful reconciliation between Australia’s Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
Reconciliation is a journey for all Australians – as individuals, families, communities, organisations and most importantly as a nation. Reconciliation Week is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation.
IPS Management Consultants recognises the power of individual voices, and the role each one plays in reconciliation. We all can play our part collectively by building relationships and communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories, culture, and build a strong, united future together.
"Sorry Day is about recognition and the forward momentum of making things better. It is about retracing my family's steps in history, regaining my family connections, learning about my unique and amazing culture, and really knowing who I am." - Danie Zappa, IPS Indigenous Advisory Consultant
