Event description

Description

Most workplaces are working with, or want to do business with Aboriginal communities, organisations or individuals so you will benefit from developing Aboriginal awareness. Each participant will receive a certificate of completion, to demonstrate increased Aboriginal awareness and understanding.

Join DEDJTR’s Diversity and Inclusion Advisor, Leanne Sumner, for discussion about Aboriginal inclusion at DEDJTR.

DEDJTR and the Arts Centre Melbourne are offering all Victorian Government employees the opportunity for free Aboriginal Cultural Awareness training. A panel of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal staff who have experience in engagement with Aboriginal stakeholders will be available to answer questions at the end of the training.

Leanne has developed this training to:

  1. Assist participants to attain a practical understanding of the lives of Aboriginal people and how to better engage with Aboriginal people and communities

  2. Provide a lived experience of Aboriginal people in contemporary Victoria, with a focus on the issues that impact on their lives, decisions, and relationships

  3. Highlight current activities in Victoria – Aboriginal organisations, services, issues

  4. Enable participants with strategies for interacting with Aboriginal people and organisations, including an overview of how organisations and the communities work and opportunities for government

  5. Opportunity for frank and open questions. Please note: some information may be of a sensitive nature; images or names of deceased Indigenous people maybe mentioned. Please be considerate of others during discussions. Leanne will be available after the training until 4pm for debriefing or you can contact your workplace EAP provider.


Participants will receive a Certificate of Completion in Aboriginal Cultural Awareness.

Terms and Conditions: Bookings are essential. Please register early as places are limited. If you are unable to attend, please let us know so we can offer your place to others on our waiting list.
