Reconciliation Week Event Showcasing some of the excellent work taking place in Aboriginal communities in Regional SA

Nicole Linsell, Emily Ware and Jaylene Ware will present on the work Centacare Country SA are doing with Reconciliation Action Working Group. The presentation will be a conversation similar to many yarning circles that enable us to share knowledge, experiences and to enable questions to flow.

Centacare Catholic Country SA have a commitment to reconciliation but also recognise this as a journey that requires ongoing critical assessment and reassessment of ourselves. Embedded in our Reconciliation Plan we aim to recognise, acknowledge, and develop mutually respectful relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. In doing so, our Reconciliation Action Working Group (RAWG) provide organisational leadership, guidance and support at all levels. This support, however, cannot come at a cost to our Aboriginal staff and communities. Therefore, we will be highlighting our learnings so far on this journey which includes an honest evaluation of areas we are still needing to address, and privileging the voices of our staff in sharing their story with the group.
