Queensland Reconciliation Awards 2023

Date/Deadline: 03 Feb, 2023

The Queensland Reconciliation Awards recognises initiatives undertaken by businesses, community organisations and groups, educational institutions and government who are going above and beyond their core business to foster reconciliation and pave the way for a better future for their state.

The program provides an opportunity to increase cross-cultural awareness, while promoting the wide range of reconciliation initiatives currently in place.

The 2023 Queensland Reconciliation Awards coincides with the Queensland Government’s focus on Path to Treaty. On the 16 August 2022, the Queensland Government, First Nations people and non-Indigenous Queenslanders participated in the signing of Queensland’s Path to Treaty Commitment. This is a critical step in setting the foundation for a new and just relationship— one that acknowledges the injustices experienced by Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and provides a platform for truth-telling, equality and opportunity.

Nominations are open to businesses, community organisations and groups, educational institutions, local councils and partnerships operating in Queensland.
