    Dogs launch Reconciliation Action Plan

    Link



    The Western Bulldogs have launched the Clubís first ever Reconciliation Action Plan in front of players, staff and community leaders at a function at Victoria University Whitten Oval today.

    The Bulldogs have built a strong reputation as the Community Club of the AFL, and with the launch of the RAP, have elevated itís commitment to promoting reconciliation, and building stronger links with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Community.

    Passionate Bulldogs supporter and host of The Marngrook Footy Show, Grant Hansen MCíd the event, and following the presidentís speech led a panel discussion between the Clubís first Indigenous Programs Manager Brett Goodes, Jordan Roughead, a member of the RAP Working Group and Tanya Hosch, the AFLís General Manager of Inclusion of Social Policy.

    Kylie Clarke, designer of the Clubís 2017 Indigenous guernsey also spoke about her RAP design concept.

    The launch of the Clubís first Reconciliation Action Plan is the first step in an important journey, and will enable the Club to implement practical and measurable actions that will directly impact and enrich the lives of people living and working in our community.

    The Bulldogs have always been more than a football club, and itís vision for reconciliation is to build a culture of equality, respect and recognition of the cultures, histories and contributions of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians.

    With the launch of the RAP, the way forward is clearer.

    Nice that they had Grant Hansen MC the event.

    He sat behind me at the footy one day, and potted everyone at the club he could think of, including the president, and that was all before he disappeared at half time. Seems a great clubman.

    Yep terrific fella. I had a similar experience with him, including some obscene personal abuse of individual players and coaches. There's never been a thing about the club he hasn't hated. Wonderful selection.
