Date: 06 May 2021


This webinar will provide guidance for boards and organisational leaders wishing to open a respectful dialogue with First Nations peoples and communities, helping you learn how to foster authentic participation and establish effective partnerships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Within the webinar Yorta Yorta consultant and community/business leader Karen Milward and social entrepreneur and facilitator Jon Staley will engage in a wide ranging conversation that explores a range of topics and themes including:

  • Understanding and responsibility for our shared history – what does this mean?
  • Creating culturally safe spaces
  • Removing barriers/creating pathways
  • Building relationships
  • Taking small (important) steps

Karen brings to this webinar decades of consulting experience and has designed and delivered over 500 Cultural Respect and Training programs throughout Australia. Jon has worked closely with a number of Aboriginal individuals and communities over the past 25 years.

What's a Webinar?

A Webinar is a seminar that's conducted over the internet.

Viewers watch a remote presentation on their own screens at a set broadcast time and can participate by typing and submitting questions they would like answered by the presenter.

Our Webinars are recorded and a copy is sent out to every registrant by default. So if you aren't able to watch the Webinar live at the scheduled time, you don't need to do anything - we'll send you a copy you can watch at your own pace on your own screen.

Why Webinars work

You'll learn at a time that suits you
If you can't join us at the scheduled time, we will automatically send you a recording you can watch at your own pace.

You can ask your burning questions
Our Webinars include a 45-minute presentation followed by a 15 minute interactive Q&A session where you'll call the shots. You do so by typing your questions during the Webinar.

You don't need an IT degree
There's no complicated software involved. You just need a reliable internet connection to participate. We'll email you instructions at each step too. Simple!
