Cultural Diversity Training

Why cultural diversity?

The Gold Coast currently has almost 1/3 residents from overseas, with our training learn the value of diversity and add it as a priority in your workforce or organisation. Increasing your own awareness of diversity as an individual or group here locally will open doors for businesses, schools, government agencies and not for profits. 

What do you get out of it?

Outcomes are a greater understanding of culture and how it goes hand in hand with all interactions we have. You will have the opportunity to build on your skills when working cross culturally and reflect on your own practices. We have delivered this training in conjunction with schools, not-for-profits, RTO’s such as Australian Red Cross, and Australia Industry and Trade College and look forward to working with you to tailor training for ½ a day. Options for 1 day training with specific cultural guest speakers or performers/workshops.

"Thank you for your fabulous presentation!
 Your  style is very enlivening and you did bring a fresh approach to delivering the content.
 We all found the learning experience very enjoyable as well as informative. Your "hands on" experience with multicultural groups has given the volunteers an opportunity to raise their own awareness around communication issues that may arise in their relationships with clients and their families.
Thanks again , and we would love to have you back for next year training if you are available!"
