It is Julie’s long professional experience coupled with her Aboriginal community roots that form the cornerstone of Koorimunication’s services. Julie has extensive experience in Aboriginal mentoring, cross-cultural communications, developing and evaluating Aboriginal employment strategies, community consultations, human services policy and program development and evaluation, training, strategic planning, and public relations.
The Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Education Program aims to provide participants the opportunity to take part in an interactive learning program based around Aboriginal cultures and history. The day includes topics such as past and present history, past policies and practices that have impacted upon Aboriginal peoples, cultural competence, engagement and protocols, and building respectful relationships.
We envisage participants will leave with:
- a greater level of confidence in their capacity to more effectively engage with both their Aboriginal colleagues and the broader Aboriginal community; and
- practical tips and information to apply within their workplace on a day-to-day basis.
All program participants receive handouts as a reference point for both the program and as a starting point to further reading/research.
