Diversicare, Berlasco Court and ECCQ recently took part in an event which unveiled the organisation’s newly developed 2017 Conciliation Action Plan (CAP). The vision for the conciliation is to acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the First Peoples, embracing the richness and diversity of their cultures, which are the oldest continuing cultures in the world.
This conciliation strategy is an essential first step in demonstrating the organisation’s commitment, aiming to increase their cultural awareness of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, building strong and meaningful relationships. To make this commitment a reality the organisation will build strong relationships with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander businesses and communities and will actively seek to promote and support business development, education and employment opportunities.
Nicole Newley-Guivarra was commissioned to paint an artwork of this new vision which was unveiled at the launch at West End.
General Manager Vivienne McDonald said: “The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander conciliation strategy is an essential first step in demonstrating our commitment, and aiming to increase Diversicare’s cultural awareness and building strong and meaningful relationships, she said.
