National Reconciliation Week
National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
The dates for NRW are the same each year; 27 May to 3 June.
Every year workplaces, schools, early learning services, community groups, reconciliation groups, and people right across the country host a whole range of activities.

Pathways to a Career in STEM: Yarning with First Nations Role Models
31 May @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm AEST
In the engineering sector, the number of Indigenous engineers employed in Australia remains low. How can we attract this critical Indigenous knowledge into the sector, and build a better representation of First Nations engineers?
Join us online on Wednesday 31 May as we celebrate National Reconciliation Week and hear from First Nations role models in the sector about their career pathways and how to ensure First Nations voices are better represented in the sector.
This event will be hosted by EWB Australia STEM Pathways Lead, Josh MacLeod, who will be joined by guest speakers, Melanie Grills (Arup Associate Principal – First Nations Programs & Projects) and Brody Mitchell (Wollongong City Council Civil Engineer Cadet). They will share their experience working in the industry, their journey to where they are today and the challenges they experienced along the way. We’ll also hear their advice for aspiring First Nations engineers.
