Artwork: Making our way
Making our way, produced by IB Creative Agency and created by De Greer-Yindimincarlie represents the Commonwealth Grants Commission’s journey of reconciliation.
As we make our way through the complex culture of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, we strive to constantly learn more about their culture and understand connection.
The Commonwealth Grants Commission strives to embed an understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture into our existing workplace culture to better understand how we interpret our collected data and communicate it.
Building these relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities will enable the Commonwealth Grants Commission Reconciliation Action Plan to be inclusive in relation to making a culturally safe workplace that is respectful, culturally aware and sensitive, and will allow us to work more inclusively and collaboratively with communities.
