We welcome the support of corporate Australia and our government partners on our shared journey towards an equitable and informed Queensland.
Their leadership and commitment provide essential momentum to the reconciliation movement, helping to preserve the cultures, languages and histories of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Through regional networks and Reconciliation Industry Network Groups, our corporate and government partners enhance the capacity of communities and workplaces to promote reconciliation across the five key dimensions.
Our partnership with BHP supports the delivery of key state-level, iconic reconciliation events and the delivery of online social and multimedia engagement platforms. Priority events include the National Reconciliation Week annual launch and breakfast, and a program of regional reconciliation forums. Specifically our partnership with BHP supports the following objectives:
- Enhanced capacity of regional networks to promote reconciliation across the five key dimensions
- An improved online delivery platform to increase engagement and access to reconciliation resources, and
- Greater community engagement around National Reconciliation Week and events that promote shared histories, cultures and achievements, and historical acceptance.
BHP recognises the traditional rights of Indigenous peoples and acknowledges their right to maintain their cultures, identities, traditions and customs.

Our Partnership with the Queensland Government's Department of Seniors, Disability Services, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Partnerships serves to promote and build reconciliation in Queensland through practical initiatives that:
- Assist to increase respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their cultures
- Create and build positive relationships between non-Indigenous Queenslanders, organisations, local and state government bodies, other entities and corporations, and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their organisations, communities and governance structures
- Foster opportunities that build social change and economic opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians.
This partnership aims to foster participation in, and celebration of, significant cultural events and local, regional, and state-level reconciliation activities through collaboration with community-based and community-driven initiatives. These initiatives include conversations about reconciliation, racism and discrimination.
