Aboriginal Cultural Awareness for Workplaces
Tue. 30 May 2017, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm AEST
It's not just an Aboriginal cultural education program, but one designed specifically to assist employers wanting to build a workforce representative of the communities they serve.
Designed to support any organisation committed to reconciliation and forms a crucial part of any Indigenous employment initiative. This program will help you to improve retention of Indigenous staff by helping your employees, supervisors, and workplaces understand Aboriginal experience and what they can do to make Indigenous employment work.
The aim is to provide information and perspective on Aboriginal cultures, experience, including the impact of history and trauma, with a focus on its application to Aboriginal employment and your workplace. You will be encouraged to think about how you can apply the learnings in your own workplace to support Aboriginal employment initiatives and staff.
Lindsay provides a holistic look at Aboriginal cultures, experience, and the workplace. Her dynamic and, at times humorous, presentation style encourages open questioning and discussion.
What others have said:
“I learnt so much in 4 hours - I learnt more in the time than any other cultural awareness training ever attended. ”
— Jenni Allan, CEO, Adssi HomeLiving Australia
“What has stopped me previously from learning about Aboriginal people was the fact I was frightened I would be made to feel blamed or would feel blame. Thankfully, your presentation was far from blaming anybody. I felt a sense of relief, and the way it was all done took away my anxiety and just opened my mind completely. I have told everybody that would listen what a great workshop and learning experience it was.”
— Kim, Ranger, Lake Macquarie City Council
“During my PhD studies at Macquarie University, I attended a cultural awareness training seminar conducted by Lindsay Stanford. Lindsay invited me to her seminar as she thought it might benefit my research, which was on Indigenous issues. The session was incredibly useful. Lindsay is an approachable and forthright woman and the session enabled open conversation about issues relating to Indigenous employment in a comfortable and mutually respectful environment. Personally it gave me deeper insight into the multiple perspectives of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, challenging stereotypes and encouraging asking questions rather than making assumptions.
I highly recommend this training for anyone working with Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Australians.”
