The City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder is calling for expressions of interest from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander residents of Kalgoorlie-Boulder to form a working group to develop and review the next phase of the City’s Reconciliation Action Plan.
The Reconciliation Action Plan, which was launched in November 2018, provided a roadmap for the City and community and laid the foundation for future reconciliation initiatives.
City of Kalgoorlie-Boulder CEO John Walker said the City would now move forward into the next stage of the plan, which was focused on innovation.
“We want to embark on a two-way liaison with meaningful, and tangible outcomes, and for this we need to ensure that the working group has active representation from the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community,” he said.
“Members of the RAP Advisory Group will represent the community as well as acting as an advocate for the City within the community, and work closely with City officers to develop and implement the updated action plan.
“There are two community positions available on the RAP Advisory Group, and we are inviting local residents with a passion and genuine commitment to the City’s Reconciliation Action Plan to step forward and join us on this journey towards reconciliation,” Mr Walker said.
Appointments to the Advisory Group are for a one year term, and are subject to approval by the CEO. Anyone interested in joining the RAP Advisory Group is encouraged to submit their CV and a short expression of interest to the City by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to PO Box 2042, Boulder WA 6432.
