For one week during the year, we have an opportunity for our business to promote our RAP commitments and provide an opportunity for our people to engage in celebrating in, and learning, about Indigenous culture.
IAG Personal Insurance Chief Executive and RAP Steering Committee Chair Andy Cornish says he always looked forward to celebrating National Reconciliation Week, which occurs between the 27th of May to 3rd of June each year.
The dates commemorate two significant milestones in the Reconciliation journey — the anniversaries of the successful 1967 referendum and the High Court Mabo decision.
He says the week is a chance for IAG’s 11,000 plus employees to explore how they can join the national Reconciliation effort.
“We believe that celebrating the culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples is important for our nation to progress Reconciliation,” he says.
