WALKING TOGETHER

Workforce Planning for Cultural Impact

Walking Together is about changing perspectives, practice and policy.

WHAT’S IT ALL ABOUT?

Walking Together is about planning the workforce specifically in regard to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander inclusion. It is a unique program that utilises workforce planning processes and tools and applies them through the lens of cultural wisdom.

The program commences with establishing strong connections and relationships between participants who may be from organisations or represent the community.

The historical knowledge gained, and the relationships developed inform progress throughout the program as participants view their current and future workforce through the lens of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This enables them to reflect on the inclusiveness of their services and what they need to do to become an employer of choice including identifying and managing myths and barriers.

**This is a two-day workshop style program.  The Working Together program is also offered as a four-day place based action learning model.

WE WILL EXPLORE:

  • Reflect upon our country’s history and the impacts today on our people and workforce
  • The value that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples bring to the workforce and the ripple effects of their inclusion in the workforce
  • Organisational policies and HR structures that support organisations to be become employers of choice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples including:

o   Attraction

o   Recruitment

o   Retention and,

o   Professional development

  • How organisations and community can work together in changing perspectives, practice and policy in their local area.

WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?

This program is most suited to people who are committed to leading and enacting inclusion into workforce and the community.  People working in human resources, leadership or learning and development will find it most useful.

WHO ARE THE FACILITATORS?

Rona Scherer comes from the Kuku Yalanji and Mamu peoples of Far North Queensland, having a strong and active role in her homelands. She comes with diverse experiences from administration to curating art exhibitions and conducting workshops and conferences presentations.

Cultural inclusion and safety within Australia are on a very long journey. There is much work to be done within workforce and with organisations who are seeking to begin those conversations. Rona sees her current role as a Workforce Consultant as her way to support making that cultural shift towards a truly reconciled and progressive nation.

Christine Payne has been with the with the Workforce Council since 2007 where she has held various roles supporting community and early childhood sector organisations in creating and implementing workforce development strategies.  More recently Christine’s work has focused on the development of resources to support learners with English as a second, or third language and the development and delivery of the ‘Develop Workforce in a Cultural Context’ program.  Christine’s involvement in this work has developed her interest in using creative approaches to teaching & learning, particularly through embedding Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives.
