Under our Reconcilliation Action Plan (RAP), the ALRC is committed to:
- engaging and consulting widely, on all aspects of our work, with Indigenous groups, individuals and organisations;
- promoting Indigenous representation in the ALRC workforce and internship program;
- ensuring that all ALRC staff have a meaningful understanding of issues relevant to Indigenous peoples;
- ensuring that ALRC recommendations for law reform in Australia have regard to the interests of and impact on Indigenous peoples; and
- striving, in all aspects of our work, to protect and promote the rights of Indigenous peoples, and improve economic and social outcomes for Indigenous peoples.
