Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Cultural Competency Workshops
What are the ATSI Cultural Competency Workshops?
These workshops reflect the University of Newcastle’s ongoing strategic commitment to Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Collaboration through NeW Directions and The Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) 2011 – 2015.
The Wollotuka Institute is offering Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Cultural Competency Workshops to meet our goals of :
- equality and respect in education, research, employment, cultural inclusion and celebrating diverse cultures and success
- enhance education and research achievements to ensure outcomes that benefit our Indigenous communities acknowledge the important role that strong Indigenous community participation plays in setting directions and priorities
- extend our understanding of Indigenous collaboration and culture to encourage the development of cultural competency and collaborative partnerships across the University.
This program aims to expand knowledge and understanding about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures to develop skills, values and critical reflection that enables positive changes in professional practice and capacity building, for staff and students, in working effectively within inter-cultural contexts.
This workshop is recommended for all staff.
Workshops are scheduled regularly throughout the year.
