National Reconciliation Week
This week, we celebrate our journey toward reconciliation. We recognise the achievements made so far, 50 years after the 1967 referendum and 25 years since the Mabo decision, and look forward to more work ahead. Reflecting on our nation’s history, we spoke with 10 Indigenous staff and students to discuss what Reconciliation Week means to them. Take your own steps in the journey to achieving reconciliation by getting involved in our week-long program of events.
