AMSANT ANNUAL REPORT 2016-2017 44 Reconciliation Action Plan AMSANT has developed a two-year Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) that outlines our commitment as an organisation to principles and actions that will support the process of reconciliation. The RAP was launched at the AMSANT Aboriginal Leadership Conference in Alice Springs in May. The key themes of the RAP ~ relationships, respect and opportunities ~ recognise the need for AMSANT to build and maintain its support of our member services, and the communities that guide them, and to promote reconciliation in all aspects of our operations. There is also a focus on providing leadership in developing relationships with non-Aboriginal organisations. These RAP goals extend to providing wider opportunities and greater inclusion for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples in all areas of their lives ~ professional, cultural, familial, social and emotional ~ and they seek to give everyone power in making their own decisions. The leadership group identified the need for our culture to be at the centre of all we do at AMSANT ~ in the workplace, in program development, in design and in delivery. AMSANT CEO, John Paterson, praised AMSANT staff involved in developing the RAP and noted that it will provide an important guide for AMSANTs work. This is what leadership is all about ~ thinking deeply and acting decisively for the overall benefit of our people.
