RAPs Faith Taking to Faith Making

June 6 @ 11:45 am - 1:45 pm AEST

The Diversity Practitioners Association presents Melanie Grills for a discussion on how to move RAPs from Faith Taking to Faith Making.

Reconciliation Action Plans (RAPs) have been around since 2006 and today over 2700 organisations have a RAP.

Join us in conversation with Melanie Grills as she draws on her significant experience in the establishing and delivering of RAPs.

In this discussion, we will unpack the power of RAPs to contribute significant societal change and explore what gives them legitimacy as a tool of change rather than becoming another artifact of tokenism.

Lunch will be served following the event at 1:00pm, please advise of dietary requirements as well as accessibility needs upon registration so we can accommodate.

This session will include an interactive Q&A, questions can be submitted via the registration form, email [email protected] or asked on the day, time allowing.

Registration essential – free for members, $40 for non-members.
