Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples experience homelessness and disadvantage at a greater rate than the general population. It is important that community services acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Nations people of this country and engage them respectfully. Respectful interaction promotes positive interaction and sharing, and provide an opportunity to connect across cultures.
This workshop builds the skills, confidence and knowledge to support participants in understanding how best to contribute to a workplace that is welcoming and culturally safe for Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples.
Supported by a local Aboriginal elder, this is an engaging workshop that uses story-sharing, individual reflection and group work, scenario testing and evaluation activities assisting us to develop deliberate ways to plan and continuously evaluate everyday practice.
