Progress on the Reconciliation Action Plan
The VEC Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2017-2019 concludes in December 2019. The RAP continues to be an important document to guide the organisation’s reconciliation journey and address the electoral participation barriers experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people living in Victoria.
The VEC has completed 58% of deliverables and is on track to achieve a further 31% by December 2019.
The following highlights were achieved during 2018-19:
- filling the role of the Aboriginal Inclusion Officer in February 2019
- partnering with the Korin Gamadji Institute (KGI) for three civic education workshops for young Aboriginal people (aged 14-18 years old)
- collaborating with community partners to deliver civic education to 895 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Victoria
- supporting an Indigenous team for the YMCA Youth Parliament in July 2018.
