National Reconciliation Week 2021
27 May – 3 June
The Benchmarque Group recognises the traditional custodians on whose lands we work and live. We wish to pay our respects to all traditional owners and elders past, present and future.
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is about strengthening relationships between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous peoples, for the benefit of all Australians.
We organised an event which all staff based in the Melbourne office participated in. The event consisted of viewing an episode of Living Black, ‘Patrick Dodson – Father of Reconciliation’; Living Black’s Karla Grant speaks with Senator Patrick Dodson, the ‘Father of Reconciliation’ about his life and career. We also organised catering for the office from Bunji catering which uses native ingredients to create unique, exciting and unexpected flavours.
It was a great opportunity for everyone to get together to reflect and recognise the importance of the week and how we as a business can continue to increase awareness and take action through education.
