Indigenous and Cultural Competency with Professor Yin Paradies

This day long workshop aims to develop understanding and knowledge of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people’s history and culture, explore cultural difference and implicit bias, and empower culturally appropriate policy and practice. We will commence with an introduction, background and context, followed by an historical and contemporary overview of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, then an exploration of cultural difference and implicit bias, concluding with approaches to culturally appropriate policy and practice. The format will include presentations, interactive exercises in small groups, and facilitated general discussion.

Lunch is not included.
