Media Opportunity: CIT to Launch Reconciliation Action Plan
Published: 17 Oct 2016
Canberra Institute of Technology (CIT) will launch ITS 2016-19 'Stretch' Reconciliation Action Plan on Wednesday as part of its NAIDOC Week celebrations*.
CIT has been a leading advocate for reconciliation since it became one of the first ACT government agencies to release a Reconciliation Statement in 2002. The commitment was strengthened in 2012 when CIT became one of Australia's first vocational education institutions to adopt a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
"This week CIT takes another step in its journey to help achieve genuine reconciliation with our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community through decisive, positive action," CIT CEO Leanne Cover said.
"By adopting a Stretch RAP, CIT commits to three years of accelerated action to further build relationships, respect and opportunities for our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community.
"CIT continues to work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by actively supporting students to achieve their learning and life goals through the dedicated CIT Yurauna Centre, which also delivers cultural awareness training across the ACT and surrounds," Ms Cover said.
