Many still hold a vision that prioritises social justice for all Australians. Such people see as an imperative enacting all of the recommendations from the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody, and the Bringing Them Home Report. It is also believed that taking firm action on the key topics outlined by the Council for Aboriginal Reconciliation are the tools to transform that vision into reality.

Participation in processes which develop cultural competencies is not just an option; it is a national necessity. Each Australian must ponder their role in this process, understanding that time is of the essence. It calls for recognising common interests shared by First Peoples and Non-Indigenous Australians, as forming the bedrock for a model society. However, of course it requires understanding our shared history, first.

Einstein’s belief that a mere two percent of the world’s population could affect real change for global peace holds true. Corporations, being part of this crucial percentile, must engage actively in the process and ensure their executives and employees become culturally competent. Thus, affirming the power of individuals in resolving national problems.

Culturally competent citizens seek ethical alliances that bridge diverse viewpoints for the betterment of Australian life. Requiring both personal and political transformations in Australia’s approach to conflict resolution. This endeavour necessitates a shift in communication patterns, urging leaders across levels to facilitate non-adversarial discussions, thus fostering understanding of the nation’s oldest cultures and its numerically dominant cultures.

In conclusion, cultural competence stands to offer solutions for socio-economic challenges, cultural deprivation, and dispossession faced by First Peoples. It underscores the interdependence of humanity, calls for conscious responsibility, and presents choices for healing our nation. It embodies justice for all Australians and embodies hope for a brighter future. As the process unfolds, Australia must ensure enduring, comprehensive solutions while avoiding shortsighted political interests.

Understanding will not eliminate all conflict, but it instils hope and propels our collective consciousness toward a better Australia. It prompts us to envision an outstanding contribution to global consciousness, signalling the transformative power of collective effort and unity.
