Olympic Football Club are delighted to confirm the approval of the club’s Reconciliation Action Plan, becoming the first club in Australian football to have been accepted as part of the program.
Following Olympic’s inaugural NAIDOC Week kits in 2019 and the inclusion of an Indigenous designed icon representing passion and unity through football on the club’s 2020 NPL Queensland jerseys, Olympic have been working for the past 12 months in conjunction with Reconciliation Australia and Nabei Indigenous Education to map out the steps the club will take as an influential organisation in the community to advance reconciliation and improve accessibility to our game for First Nations Peoples, and are now seeking expressions of interest for community members to join our Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group.
The Reconciliation Action Plan program administered by Reconciliation Australia consists of four stages of planning, which include Reflect, Innovate, Stretch, and Elevate.
These programs are based on five critical dimensions of reconciliation: race relations, equality and equity, institutional integrity, unity, and historical acceptance.
These dimensions do not exist in isolation, and we aim to help our nation progress in reconciliation through all five dimensions. Our RAP outlines the steps we will take as a club to help address the five dimensions of reconciliation.
If you would like to be a part of Olympic’s Reconciliation Action Plan Working Group, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your expression of interest.
