Working with Aboriginal Peoples

This workshop will build on the discussions staff have had in the Aboriginal Cultural Safety workshops and explore strategies for working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.   

Through a series of case studies we will look at what is appropriate from recruitment through to having staff working in the University as well as strategies for retention of staff.

The workshop will be very interactive in order to explore as many scenarios as possible.  It will also refer to UniSA's Reconciliation Action Plan and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Employment Policy and give participants an understanding of how we can achieve the goal of being the University of Choice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Please Note: to attend this session, you must have already completed 'Aboriginal Cultural Safety' training.

Audience: All UniSA staff who have completed 'Aboriginal Cultural Safety'
Duration: 4 hours (9.00am - 1.00pm or 1.00pm - 5.00pm)
Venue: AU2-02 Training Room, Level 2, 101 Currie Street
