Why Attend Cultural Awareness Training?

Our workshops are designed to up skill participants, and impart a deeper understanding, respect and appreciation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and peoples. Our objective is to help participants better understand how to engage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and appreciate the benefits of a culturally diverse workforce.
