Building Aboriginal cultural safety
This half day, online workshop will cover the various aspects of cultural safety for First Nations people.
The session will cover:

- understanding our own culture (self-reflection and organisational reflection)
- types of bias and what influences cultural bias (conscious and unconscious)

The learning outcomes of this workshop will raise participant's awareness of the diversity of cultural experiences, and help them reflect on how individual attitudes and values influence perceptions, assumptions and behaviours within the workplace.
