Our ongoing commitment to Furthering Self Determination continues with our new Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) team. This team has been formed to establish and build upon the priorities of the TACSI organisation as an innovation organisation who works with and amongst our first people.
A Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) program provides a framework for organisations to support the national reconciliation movement, with TACSI’s framework anticipated to include innovation in partnership with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander’s as a focus.
Carolyn Curtis CEO said“It’s a critical time for us to go on this journey as we build deeper and longer lasting partnerships with organisations and communities”.
“We are deeply committed to exploring the role of innovation in furthering self determination, and this must start by looking inward and questioning our own values, assumptions and practices. Innovation too often plays into all the stereotypes that hold us back from making progress towards meaningful reconciliation, we want to hold ourselves to account in trying to shift that”.
TACSI is being assisted in the facilitation of the RAP by our wonderful community connector Aunty Vickey Charles an Alawa/Mara woman from the Northern Territory, Aunty Sharon from the Ngarrindjeri Nation and Kathleen Stacey.
