Facilitated by Julie Moore from Koorimunication -

Julie Moore was born in Berry, NSW and raised at Wreck Bay on the NSW South Coast. She is a proud member of the Wandandian people of the Yuin nation. It is Julie’s long professional experience coupled with her Aboriginal community roots that form the cornerstone of Koorimunication’s services.

Julie has extensive experience in Aboriginal mentoring, cross-cultural communications, developing and evaluating Aboriginal employment strategies, community consultations, human services policy and program development and evaluation, training, strategic planning, and public relations.

The Aboriginal Cultural Awareness Education Program aims to provide participants the opportunity to take part in an interactive learning program based around Aboriginal culture history and present. The day includes topics such as past and present history, past policies and practices that have impacted upon Aboriginal peoples, cultural competence, engagement and protocols, and building respectful relationships.

We envisage participants will leave with:

  • a greater level of confidence in their capacity to more effectively engage with both their Aboriginal colleagues and the broader Aboriginal community; and
  • practical tips and information to apply within their workplace on a day-to-day basis.

All program participants receive handouts as a reference point for both the program and as a starting point to further reading/research.

Food: Morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea provided.

We suggest you register before 20 August 2020. This will secure your place and assist us to confirm numbers for this training to occur. If you are unable to attend, we suggest you send another person in your place, or contact us to discuss other options.


Terms and Conditions:

Cancellations made less than 14 days prior to the workshop will incur a full charge. Bookings are essential. We ask that participants attend the full duration of the program.
