McCullough Robertson celebrates NAIDOC Week

Leading Australian law firm McCullough Robertson today brought its offices together to celebrate the many histories, cultures and achievements of Australia’s First Peoples.

Inspired by this year’s NAIDOC Week theme ‘Songlines: a narrative of Australia’, the interactive event featured live dance performances from the Aboriginal and Islander Independent Community School and the Aboriginal Centre for the Performing Arts.

Staff also had the privilege of sharing traditional stories and art that carry significant spiritual and cultural connection to knowledge, customs, ceremony and lore of many Aboriginal nations and Torres Strait Islander language groups.

The firm also introduced its 2016-17 Reconciliation Action Plan.

Chairman of Partners Dominic McGann said McCullough Robertson had a long history of engagement with Indigenous Australians, working with Yalari and the Cathy Freeman Foundation to give children from remote communities opportunities to broaden their horizons through education, employment and personal development experiences.

“We believe that education is the key to closing the gap faced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples,” said Mr McGann.

“This will remain a major focus of our reconciliation strategy and will encourage our partners and staff to participate in activities that acknowledge and promote the unique contribution of Indigenous Australians.

“We were delighted to see so many of our partners and staff come together with our community to celebrate NAIDOC Week and reinforce our commitment to Australia’s first Peoples”.
