Cbus supports the RECOGNISE movement

17 May 2017

Cbus has joined a network of more than 160 organisations, including corporate, NGO, community controlled organisations and peak representative bodies who support the principles of constitutional recognition.

Cbus CEO, David Atkin was recently joined by Mark Yettica-Paulson and Tim Gartrell, RECOGNISE Joint Campaign Directors, to sign the Campaign Partners Network Charter (PDF) which supports recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in the Australian Constitution.

Mr Atkin said “Cbus believes in the cause of reconciliation and is committed to contributing towards social change and economic opportunities for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. We are pleased to help build support for the RECOGNISE movement.”

Mr Yettica-Paulson said “We are delighted to have Cbus join us and welcome their commitment to inclusion, transparency and investing for a better future. RECOGNISE shares these values and is excited to be standing alongside Cbus as we take this next important step in the journey to reconciliation. Together we can hand a better future to our children.”

Cbus is also proud to support the Big Super Day Out. The event is organised by First Nations Foundation and is designed to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to engage with their superannuation, think about their future and plan for their retirement. The next event will take place in Brisbane on 7 July 2017 at NAIDOC Family Fun Day in Musgrave Park.
