Build Your First Nations Cultural Capability



Tuesday 20 June 2023 | 9:30am - 1:00pm AEST


Australia is home to the oldest continuing living culture in the entire world, one that spans 60,000+ years into the present. The richness and diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures in Australia is something we should all take pride in as a nation. But how much do you know about this culture, its continuing traditional practices and the commitments that aboriginal people have to them? Do you know the obligations for attendance around sorry business or referring to people who have passed away? Do you know what Aboriginal words, titles and slang you can use as an ally, and what you should avoid? If you work with, or have direct reports that are First Nations people, how do you know you’re not inadvertently making their life more difficult?

The Hatchery has partnered with seasoned executive leader and facilitator Lil Gordon to deliver a half day online seminar intended to give you a strong foundation of knowledge about how to respectfully work with and engage First Nations people and their culture. Don’t miss this opportunity to deepen your understanding of Aboriginal perspectives and learn to apply skills that will improve your cultural capability in the workplace.

“My passion is working alongside our communities in empowering Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people to create their own destiny, to provide those opportunities to give us the best chance to be the very best we can with whatever we choose to do. Aboriginal education and training has been my main field along with effective and balanced leadership in building capability with Aboriginal people as well as building understanding and capacity with non-Aboriginal people to recognise their potential in the ‘bigger picture’.”
