An equal and inclusive community

Wesley Mission Queensland is committed to creating meaningful connections with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, based on mutual respect and understanding to create a diverse, just and empowering organisation for our staff, clients and the community. 

Our vision for reconciliation is for all people to stand unified in an equal and inclusive future. We commit to enhancing opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and celebrating diversity. We have created the role of Manager Reconciliation, Diversity and Inclusion to ensure our reconciliation goals are properly prioritised and resourced.

Our Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan has been formally endorsed by Reconciliation Australia. This document outlines our strategies, goals and achievements towards reconciliation. It guides our organisation on how to build positive and stronger relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, communities, organisations and the broader Australian community. All staff are provided with this document and given opportunities to engage with reconciliation initiatives. 

Our journey to reconciliation will require everyone’s input from all voices, as well as local Indigenous 
leaders and community members. We are #InThisTogether.
