If you’re interested in learning more about Australia’s history and traditional cultures, save the date! This session will be run by a professional, highly regarded Indigenous facilitator, who will take us through:

·         Indigenous history, cultures and peoples

·         Non-Indigenous & Indigenous attitudes towards each other and how they are formed

·         Cross cultural behaviour and actions

The program assists individuals to develop a sense of the complexity of the issues that are covered. It encourages participants to recognise that different cultures have different ways of valuing, seeing, doing and believing. To work successfully with people from other cultures, we need to know which characteristics are the critical ones.

This training is recommended for all EWB members, both with and without prior experience working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, as it will provide an opportunity to learn from each other. We aim to equip all of our members with the skills to engage respectfully and effectively with people of diverse backgrounds. Cultural Awareness Training is a great way to better understand how your personal culture affects your worldview and improve your ability to relate to others. Members wishing to engage in EWB projects with Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander partners are required to undertake Cultural Awareness Training.

When: Saturday 6th May, 9am – 4:30pm

When: 3/8 Thomas St, Chatswood NSW 2067

Cost for professional members is $50, and $40 for students.

Spaces are limited, so make sure you get in quick to avoid missing out on this great opportunity!
