Acknowledgement

CSIA would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the lands on which we work.

While our work is nation-wide, we acknowledge:

  • the Yuggera /Jagera peoples, and the surrounding nations peoples
  • the Quandamooka peoples
  • the Turrbal peoples.

We would like to pay respects and give thanks to Elders; past, present and emerging who have – and continue to – pave the way for reconciliation in this land we call Australia.

Our commitment to reconciliation

CSIA is building our cultural capacity as we move through the development of a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).

We believe it’s important to progress our capability to engage intentionally with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander organisations and peoples to identify shared goals and initiatives that progress reconciliation.

CSIA works closely with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and organisations. We do this to advance our ability to develop connections, build deep relationships and move towards strong partnerships.

During 2019, we welcomed Traditional Owners and Elders to share their culture and knowledge with staff and Board teams.

Following this we began the journey on our Reflect RAP in partnership with Reconciliation Australia.

While this is our first RAP, we are very proud of the steps we have taken towards reconciliation since CSIA’s inception.
