Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs)
Build positive relationships by taking key steps towards reducing unconscious bias and increasing Cultural competence.
There are four kinds of RAP: Reflect, Innovate, Stretch and Elevate.
The first level RAP is defined as follows by Reconciliation Australia:
A Reflect RAP clearly sets out the steps you should take to prepare your organisation for reconciliation initiatives in successive RAPs. Committing to a Reflect RAP allows your organisation to spend time scoping and developing relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander stakeholders, deciding on your vision for reconciliation and exploring your sphere of influence, before committing to specific actions or initiatives. This process will help to produce future RAPs that are meaningful, mutually beneficial and sustainable.”
The commitments in a Reflect RAP include:
These commitments show the organisation’s heartfelt dedication to a positive and inclusive future for all Australians .
