About the workshop

Join our facilitator, John Briggs, as he takes us on a Cultural Awareness journey, delivering content from evidence-based research, through conversation and interactive workshopping. Groups explore the socio-political views through a timeline that allows each participant to build an understanding about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander targeted programs and strategies – what they’re built on, where they come from, their philosophies and basic framework. 

This training incorporates professional conversations that uncovers the idea behind ‘exclusion to inclusion’, as well as deconstructs unconscious bias and other blockers preventing effective practice. Workshops build individuals confidence and understanding in how to action this space, within a culturally safe environment.
