Workplaces have an important role to play in building a better future between Indigenous and non-Indigenous Australians.

We hear time and time again that workplaces are looking for an organisational cultural shift and wanting to implement a Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP) from Reconciliation Australia. In fact, for a number of decades Workplaces have been actively engaging with Indigenous people and culture.

We believe the starting point is knowing and understanding Australia's full story. Our learning resources can help inspire and equip you and your workplace to understand our shared history and respond in meaningful ways. 

We encourage you to start by building the awareness of your staff. Our pre-engagement video, stories, articles and tools will set you, and your staff, up so your cultural awareness training is more successful. 

Start below as you and your workplace listen and learn at your own pace.
