Our Community


Richmond Football Club’s vision for Reconciliation is to connect our nation, uniting first and new peoples who thrive together. Through Korin Gamadji Institute, Richmond FC continue to celebrate and communicate Indigenous rights, culture and heritage, while creating new opportunities for the next generation of emerging Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders. 

Richmond began their journey towards supporting reconciliation in 2011 with the Maurice Rioli Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Since then we have executed two further RAPs, with our 2018-20 RAP achieving ‘Elevate’ status and demonstrating a point of depth in our reconciliation journey. We have committed to a bridging RAP for 2021 and are currently developing our 2022-25 RAP. 


Richmond and Korin Gamadji are committed to fostering a culture of inclusion by celebrating and connecting with diverse and marginalised communities. Through our Diversity & Inclusion Action Plan (DIAP) we endeavour to build a diverse and inclusive club and connect with those who are often disconnected and under-represented within the AFL industry. 

We are currently developing the next iteration of our DIAP which will outline our commitments for 2022-25.

Korin Gamadji Institute

We extend our deepest respect to First Peoples and Traditional Owners of the land, air and waterways where we live and work.

Korin Gamadji means ‘grow and emerge’ in Woiwurrung, the language of the Wurundjeri people. In 2011 these words were gifted to Richmond Football Club by Wurundjeri Elders, and the Korin Gamadji Institute was born.
