The Aboriginal Advisory Committee (AAC) advises and assists in the development and implementation of a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) for the City of Bayswater, with the aim to help the workplace to facilitate understanding, promote meaningful engagement, increase equality and develop sustainable employment and business opportunities. This is a new committee recently initiated by Council.
RAPs generally place a priority on recommending internal changes within an organisation, rather than on programs delivered to the community. This may include initiatives such as cultural awareness training for staff, increasing levels of employment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander staff in the City and ensuring City services/programs are accessible and inclusive for Aboriginal people.
The Aboriginal Advisory Committee held its inaugural meeting on 28 February 2018, and will meet six times per year.
