Aboriginal Cultural Awareness & Understanding Workshop

In recognition of 2019 NAIDOC Week, Auspire – Australia Day Council WA in collaboration with Chamber of Commerce & Industry WA will be presenting an informative and interactive half day workshop to learn about Aboriginal culture and understand the impacts of colonisation that still play out today with our First Nations Peoples and mainstream Australia.

This workshop will assist participants and their businesses with information and understanding that can improve lives and workplaces for both aboriginal and non-aboriginal people. Basic aboriginal cultural awareness and understanding can facilitate real and lasting change through changed attitudes and behaviours at both a professional and personal level.
