National Reconciliation Week 2023 at ANU

We all have a role to play when it comes to reconciliation. ANU recognises the importance of reconciliation for all members of our community, and continues to advance initiatives that cultivate a deeper understanding and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories and cultures. Reconciliation is fundamental to achieving respect for, celebrating, and learning from, First Nation Peoples. National Reconciliation Week is held annually from 27 May to 3 June, with the start and end dates recognising two significant milestones in Australia’s Reconciliation journey: the 1967 referendum, and the 1992 Mabo High Court decision. Reconciliation at ANU is everyone’s business, and your participation collectively builds and deepens relationships and strengthens communities that value Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The theme for Reconciliation Week 2023 is “Be A Voice For Generations - For the work of generations past, and the benefit of generations future, act today for a more just, equitable and reconciled country for all.” This page highlights some of the opportunities available during National Reconciliation Week to be that voice.
