Event description

Understanding Cultural Safety in the Workplace

As part of the Carnegie Community Engagement Network offerings, we invite you to take part in the workshop "Understanding Cultural Safety in the Workplace" led by Aboriginal Insights.

The themes of Reconciliation are a good way to determine the Cultural Safety of any organisation: Relationships, Respect, and Opportunities. When Cultural Safety is achieved we have strong and respectful relationships with Aboriginal people and stakeholders; we have strong respect towards Aboriginal people and cultures; we have opportunities being realised.

Join us at this 3-hour Workshop which looks to unpack in detail five components of the definition of Cultural Safety:  

  • Image / Brand / Reputation
  • Expression of Respect
  • Attitudes
  • Policies, Processes, and Systems
  • Respect and Relationships

Also, the session will cover topics like:

  • Accessing Services/ Programs & Applying for Opportunities
  • Responding to Cultural Safety gaps/ deficiencies by looking at 2 scenarios

No Aboriginal person wants to work anywhere that is culturally unsafe. No Aboriginal person wants to engage with a workplace that is not genuine about their commitments. Any workplace committed to Aboriginal-specific outcomes, Reconciliation, and relationships with Aboriginal stakeholders must be committed to creating a Culturally Safe & Responsive Workplace. 

This session is run as part of the Carnegie Community Engagement Network offerings. If you work, study, or partner with a member institution of the network you can access discounted tickets. Please get in touch with your Carnegie representative at your University or email for more information.

*Please note that this session has limited seats.
