First steps - developing our vision statement

Word cloud with words that were used in the RAP vision statement
Words that staff wanted the RAP Vision Statement to include.

30 June 2018

Committing to a Reflect RAP allows us to collaborate on a vision for reconciliation and explore our sphere of influence before committing to specific actions or initiatives. This process will help to produce future RAPs that are meaningful, mutually beneficial and sustainable.

An initial broadcast was held on 27 June 2018 to engage with internal corporate staff and collect their thoughts on reconciliation, cultural safety and creating our RAP vision statement. Secretary, Mark Scott, and Head of Aboriginal Affairs, Jason Ardler, addressed the 480 staff who registered for the online dialogue focused on producing a RAP vision statement that captures the collective hopes of the department.

To be effective, the Department of Education’s Reconciliation Action Plan needs your ideas and input. Participate in shaping our REFLECT RAP in the following ways:

  • Catch up – If you were unable to join the broadcast, the session was recorded. The recording and transcript will be available soon.
  • Complete the survey [NOW CLOSED] – contribute your views on our RAP vision statement.
  • Next Mass Voice – listen out for the next RAP Mass Voice, which you’ll be invited to.
  • NAIDOC week – celebrate NAIDOC week during 8 – 15 July 2018.
  • Email us – send us your ideas and information: rap@det.nsw.edu.au.
