Over 2017 our Community is Everything campaign work continues and we will launch our ambitious Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP). Success for our Aboriginal and Torres Straits Islander rights and RAP work hinges on bringing our grassroots – our activists and action groups, our volunteers and supporters along on our journey to reconciliation. An integral part of this journey is developing and improving our cultural competency.
Amnesty along with YARN Australia are hosting a cultural competency workshop in our Sydney Action Centre. Cultural competency includes building our respect and understanding between peoples and cultures. It also includes working toward equality and strengthening our knowledge of each other’s world view, expectations and attitudes.
As a predominantly non-Indigenous organisation, Amnesty aims to continue to offer opportunities for staff and supporters to build on and improve our cultural competency so we can support and work alongside Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities in their work for self determination and social justice.
There is a fee of $15 per person/$10 concession which includes morning tea and lunch. The workshop will run from 10am to 4pm.
There are limited places available for this workshop. All interested applicants will need to complete an Expression of Interest by 24 March 2017. Successful applicants will be advised by 27 March 2017.
