Reconciliation Action Plan

IMG 9174

The AES launched the Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan at the aes18 Gala Awards Dinner, held at the Albert Hall, Launceston. The RAP is the result of more than a year of collaborative work by the Cultural Capacity and Diversity Committee (CCDC), and the Board. We encourage all AES members to actively engage with the initiatives and activities presented in this Reflect Reconciliation Action Plan, as we work together to improve evaluation’s engagement, respect for and collaboration with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
