National Reconciliation Week 2020

28 May 2020

National Reconciliation Week is an opportunity to reflect on our shared past, as well as on what we can do to walk towards equality, together.

The theme for 2020 is “In This Together”, reminding us that reconciliation is a journey for all Australians and each of us has a part to play in a brighter tomorrow.

Being a professional services provider employing a large number of scientists and engineers, Greencap proudly supports the Australian Literacy & Numeracy Foundation (ALNF) who seek to give all Australian children the same opportunities to write their own bright future. 

In acknowledgement of Reconciliation Week this year, Greencap has challenged team members to donate a coffee and stand together to close the gap for literacy and numeracy in Indigenous communities.
