Leading Cultural Change in your Organisation

Supporting leaders Activate Inclusion by aligning their cultural knowledge, actions and behaviours with the organisational values and commitments of their organisation.


Workforce Council has many years’ experience delivering cultural inclusion programs that build individual cultural capability.  Real change though, must be supported and enacted from the top through the actions and behaviours of leaders.


Activate Inclusion provides a space for leaders in similar roles and with similar challenges and opportunities to explore the benefits of inclusion and to gain skills and ideas for practical implementation of inclusion strategies back in the workplace.


This is an engaging program using a range of learning approaches and drawing upon the wisdom of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders.  We engage in yarning circles, explore theoretical concepts of organisational change, reflect on our leadership and work together to generate inclusion strategies that can be tested back in the workplace.


  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, community and history and what this means in a workforce context
  • Inclusive leadership
  • Models of organisational change
  • Challenging conversations – working with resistance
  • Developing engagement strategies to embed inclusion within organisation’s


This program is most suited to human resources professionals, leaders, managers, CEOs, or anyone committed to leading cultural change within their organisation.


Christine Payne has been with the with the Workforce Council since 2007 where she has held various roles including the coordination of a variety of projects and programs across the community sector and early childhood education and care. 

Christine is part of the Workforce Council team focused on the design and delivery of our inclusive practice offerings including the unique ‘Walking Together – Workforce Planning for Cultural Impact’ and other initiatives aimed at building individual and organisational level cultural capability. Christine’s involvement in this work, and the design and development of resources to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander learners with English as a second, third or fourth language, has developed her interest in using creative approaches in teaching, learning and workforce planning, particularly through embedding indigenous perspectives in our work. 


JAN UNGERER has a wealth of experience working in the human services area, having worked across a range of community, educational and business contexts.  She has worked in a variety of roles in sector development in the education, health and community services sector. Jan is a skillful host of conversations that matter which supports individuals and organisations to engage in meaningful dialogue to lead and promote change.  Jan’s own practice is informed by the frameworks of Appreciative Inquiry and dialogue based methodologies. Her current work focusses on developing leadership capacity within the community services sector predominately through mentoring and coaching.


We will be joined by Aunty Dorothy Savage from Bindal Country, Uncle Leo Akee from Mer Island in the Torres Strait and Aunty Virginia Wyles from Wulgurukaba Country.
