      Aboriginal Cultural Awareness for Workplaces

      Build a workplace that respects, welcomes and supports Aboriginal people If you're working on Aboriginal employment or developing a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP), this cultural awareness will help you build a basic understanding of Aboriginal cultures, disadvantage, experiences, and what you can do in your workplace to make Indigenous employment work. 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 Aboriginal employment initiative.  This program will help you to improve retention of Aboriginal 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. The Aboriginal Cultural Awareness for Workplaces will cover the following topics: Traditional beliefs, values and practices of Aboriginal people in New South Wales and Australia The history of disadvantage faced by Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people in Australia How this history continues to impact on education, employment and other opportunities Rationale of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander employment initiatives Acceptable language for referring to Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander people and communities in workplace contexts Practical strategies for staff and workplaces to contribute to positive Aboriginal employment outcomes 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.”— Rebecca Reeve, PhD In the 4-hour Aboriginal Cultural Awareness for Workplaces you'll also learn: Why Aboriginal employment is important Reasons Aboriginal people face such disadvantage today The Blakworks’ Model of Aboriginal Experience and how to apply it in your workplace Intergenerational trauma and how it affects Aboriginal employment The impact of history since 1788 The impact of the Stolen Generations How you can use this model to improve your service delivery, workplaces and employment opportunities The importance of Aboriginal land, languages and totems When you use the word Aboriginal and when you use the word Indigenous Aboriginal kinship and family relationships 3 ways we use traditional song and dance The diversity of Aboriginal people in Australia and NSW How many Aboriginal people live in Australia now How many Aboriginal people live on the Central Coast (or your local area) The difference between Aboriginal people and Torres Strait Islander people and Indigenous people Traditional regional and language groups of Aboriginal people from NSW Two major economic reasons the first fleet was sent here How Aboriginal people communicated between different Aboriginal languages Traditional beliefs including stories of our Great Creator The meanings of totems and how they help us Things you can do every day to build respectful, welcoming, supportive workplaces Plus more...
