ACT Reconciliation Council
The council act as community ambassadors, encouraging community conversations about the importance of Reconciliation throughout the year.
The ACT Reconciliation Council plays a vital role in promoting reconciliation across Canberra, encouraging all members of the community to learn more about the histories and cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Six new members to the Reconciliation Council bring a diverse range of experience and great enthusiasm for building Reconciliation in our community.
The new Council members are:
- Mr Brendan Egan, former Corporate Services Director, Reconciliation Australia
- Ms Lynne Duckham OAM, Senior Executive
- Dr Nadine White, Director, Human Resources, ANU
- Ms Helen Wright, Director, Native Title Research Unit, Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies
- Vice Admiral Paul Maddison, Director UNSW Defence Research Institute
- Emeritus Professor Richard Munro Baker, Former Pro Vice-Chancellor, ANU
The new members will join the Council’s co-chairs, Dr Chris Bourke and Ms Genevieve Jacobs, in promoting community conversations about Reconciliation and overseeing preparations for the next Reconciliation Day on 1 June 2020.
Reconciliation is a continual process of renewal and re engagement with the community to build a shared understanding of our past and future.
