MESSAGE FROM THE AUSTRALIAN STATISTICIAN

I am pleased to present the Australian Bureau of Statistics Reconciliation Action Plan 2018–2021.

The ABS Reconciliation Action Plan 2018–2021 continues to build on the ABS’ commitment to ensuring recognition and respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, increasing the recruitment and retention of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the ABS and continuing to build positive relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians.

This strategy supports the ABS’ purpose to inform Australia’s important decisions by partnering and innovating to deliver relevant, trusted, objective data, statistics and insights and recognises that our people are the key to successfully transforming our organisation.

I would like to thank all the people who have contributed to the development of this Reconciliation Action Plan. We all have a fundamental role to play in following through the actions set out in this Plan, to contribute to cultural change and achieve our objectives for reconciliation. I am confident that the ABS will make an important contribution to reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and other Australians.

David W. Kalisch
Australian Statistician
