• Cultural Awareness Workshop

Have you ever thought about cultural awareness training for your company?

The demand for Cultural awareness training has increased dramatically especially for governments and major corporations who provide services to Aboriginal communities or seek to gain understanding of the Aboriginal identity and history or for companies looking to build a workplace that respects, welcomes and supports Aboriginal people and our culture.

What does Cultural Awareness Training provide my company?

Cultural awareness training provides participants with understanding, knowledge, new attitudes and finally skills to use immediately in their work environment. It encourages and assists participants to develop:

  • Understanding of the Aboriginal identity and history
  • Knowledge of the different behavioural styles of Aboriginal people
  • An attitude of tolerance and respect towards Aboriginal culture
  • The skill to communicate with Aboriginal people

 

Five Key aspects of successful Cultural Awareness Training:

  1. Having a knowledgeable Aboriginal trainer who can directly relate to your business challenges and circumstances so you have real world examples to put into practice
  2.  Storytelling and group involvement is a must e.g. What cultural challenges have you faced when dealing with colleagues in your office? can bring out a rich discussion and stories which can be used for learning purposes.
  3. Self awareness and evaluation – training that makes people aware of the impact their actions are likely to have e.g. When you think you are being ‘upfront’ and ‘honest’ might that be interpreted as rudeness in another culture?
  4. Communication. Most people assume communication challenges come from the different languages we speak, but it’s more that different cultures use language differently. What one culture considers to be good communication styles is very often viewed as poor by a different culture. This topic includes behavioural differences as well.
  5. Participant will leave better informed about indigenous culture, more positive about themselves and with real-world skills to work more effectively with Aboriginal people and to enhance their cultural awareness
