Cultural Safety

Cultural Safety is of critical importance for supporting Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander People. Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander People are dealing with racism and they are significantly under-represented in the workforce in Australia.

Cultural Safety training is vital to address racism and support Indigenous Australians. One way to support Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander People is to ensure we have a shared understanding of Cultural Safety and what it means, this includes the knowledge and skills to address racism and to recognise racism in the workplace.
