Now more than ever

A message from Pro Vice-Chancellor (Indigenous) Kelly Humphrey:

It’s National Reconciliation Week and I invite you to join me in a conversation about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories, cultures and achievements, and about reconciliation.

The theme for National Reconciliation Week is ‘Now More Than Ever’ and this resonates deeply with the challenges and opportunities we face as a nation, post referendum. It beckons us to reflect on our individual roles in fostering reconciliation, understanding, and unity within our communities.

This week serves as a poignant reminder that reconciliation is not a one-time event but an ongoing journey - a journey that requires active participation from each of us. It's about acknowledging the truths of our past, confronting the injustices, and working together to build a future grounded in respect, equality, and understanding.

As we acknowledge this week, let us engage in meaningful conversations, listen with open hearts, and commit ourselves to tangible actions that promote reconciliation and healing. Whether it's advocating for Indigenous rights, supporting local reconciliation initiatives, or simply reaching out to someone with a gesture of kindness, every effort counts.

Together, let us strive to keep the unity of the Spirit, transcending barriers and building bridges of solidarity across cultures, generations, and perspectives. For in unity, we find strength, and in reconciliation, we find hope for a brighter, more inclusive future.
