Momentum Collective’s Reconciliation Action Plan 2019 – 2021.
While great effort is being made to close the gap that exists between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, there is still much to be done to achieve reconciliation. Momentum Collective is committed to positively contributing to Australia’s reconciliation journey and to building strong, trusting relationships with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities we support.
