Indigenous Cultural Awareness Coaching Programme (2 part) coaching programme
Starts live on Wednesday 19 July 2017 at 2 pm AEST (1 pm SA & NT, and 12 noon WA)
All industry staff
Extensive cultural knowledge is not necessary in order to become culturally aware. A capacity to recognise that cultural difference exists, and to be open to learning from these differences is the basis of cultural awareness.
This Coaching programme is designed to expand thinking and understanding about the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, their history and contemporary issues; and to facilitate understanding between staff and the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people they are working with.
You will be provided with historical legislative and policy development information, as it pertains to Australian Indigenous peoples, to better understand the current socio-economic situation of Indigenous Australians.
Over this two part series you will hear Gail Reynolds-Adamson’s personal narrative and insight into people from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander backgrounds in the workplace, customer base and the broader community. Each session is expected to run for approximately an hour and a half. This live broadcast will include ample Q&A time. Once the series has been completed you will be sent a Certificate of Completion for your portfolio.
