Sharing our story of reconciliation
NAIDOC Week is an opportunity for us all to experience and learn more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture – and to celebrate and recognise the history and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
As part of this week’s activities, we are excited to introduce our new reconciliation design, which will be used across internal and external communications to demonstrate our commitment to taking meaningful action in advancing reconciliation.
The Insignia Financial reconciliation design was developed by Leigh Harris, a proud Kangoulu and Gungarri man based in Queensland. Drawing on his Aboriginal heritage and weaving in our organisational purpose and principles, Leigh captured in his design our reconciliation journey. It depicts the key elements of building relationships, respect and opportunities, as well as the work of Insignia Financial’s people in improving the lives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples across Australia.
The design was launched on Monday 4 July in an all-staff webinar by Leigh Harris, where he shared the symbolism of the various design elements and reminded all that “NAIDOC Week is an opportunity to discover more about First Nations People, the importance of all belonging and the need to join hands to work together.”
