This workshop will be the first for 2019.   The workshop will provide information that will help participants increase their understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures, histories and peoples. Furthermore, obtaining this knowledge will provide a stronger platform for the successful implementations of new initiatives in the organisation; such as a reconciliation action plan and/or Indigenous employment strategies.   This full day workshop from 9am - 4pm will be facilitated by Benny Eggmolesse, a Kurawali from the Diamantina River and Mbarbaram of the Atherton Tablelands.
