Australian Ethical supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart. We welcome and are supportive of moves for a First Nations Voice to Parliament protected by the Australian constitution. Our conviction is that a decision to enable First Nations Peoples to have a say in policy and legal decisions that impact their lives is an important step forward for our nation, not only in recognising our shared history, but also in better enabling solutions that empower First Nations people and communities today, as well as generations to come.
The Australian Ethical Charter promotes investments and activities that contribute to human flourishing, dignity, health and education. We believe this is an important step towards achieving a sustainable, resilient, and prosperous future for all Australians.
