IPEA's commitment to reconciliation
IPEA acknowledges the traditional owners and custodians of country throughout Australia and acknowledges their continuing connection to land, waters and community. We pay our respects to the people, the cultures and the elders past, present and emerging.
IPEA is pleased to launch its first Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Endorsed by Reconciliation Australia, our Reflect RAP is the formal launch of IPEA’s reconciliation journey. Through our RAP, IPEA commits to recognising and understanding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and contribution. By enhancing IPEA’s understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, we are better able to reflect the Australian community whom parliamentarians are elected to represent.
Any questions about our RAP can be sent to ipea [at] ipea.gov.au.
