As part of Murumal's commitment to helping people understand and appreciate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, history and people; we are hosting a series of Cultural Awareness Workshops in Canberra. This workshop will be the first for 2019.
The workshop will provide information that will help participants increase their understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, histories and peoples. Furthermore, obtaining this knowledge will provide a stronger platform for the successful implementations of new initiatives in the organisation; such as a reconciliation action plan and/or Indigenous employment strategies.
This full day workshop from 9am - 4pm will be facilitated by Benny Eggmolesse, a Kurawali from the Diamantina River and Mbarbaram of the Atherton Tablelands. Benny’s background is in Human Resources specialising in diversity with a focus on Indigenous workforce development. He has a wide range of experience delivering Indigenous employment programmes, policy reform, cultural awareness training, cultural data analysis and HR consultation targeted towards closing the gap outcomes.
We discuss in depth Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, customs and traditions. Participants develop a deep understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s connection to land, community and spirituality.
Explore significant moments in history which have impacted on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, land, and culture. Participants will learn about key policies and events which changed Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples.
Review Government strategies that aims to reduce disadvantage among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people with respects to Closing the Gap. In addition, Participants also look at their organisation own policy and key priorities targeted towards Closing the Gap.
Lastly, we wrap up the day by sharing with participants various resources for further learning. Participants are also advised on upcoming local events and encouraged to continue the learning journey.
