First Nations Reconciliation

Smoking ceremony

Monash Council acknowledges the Traditional Owners of this land, the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung and Bunurong People, and recognises their continuing connection to the land and waterways. We pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging and extend this to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

In 2021, Council was proud to announce its intention to develop an Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan to be formally endorsed by Reconciliation Australia.

An Innovate Reconciliation Action Plan outlines the shared approach Council will take to work alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples to advance reconciliation in our workplace and across the Monash municipality. An Innovate Plan runs for 2 years and outlines actions for achieving our organisation’s vision for reconciliation.

Council endorsed the Monash Reconciliation Action Plan at its 13 December 2022 meeting.
