Beyond Ticking the Box: Conversations that matter between Aboriginal Leaders and Non Aboriginal Leaders in White Organisations
annecto, a human rights-oriented disability and aged care organisation, has built a partnership relationship with the Aboriginal community over a number of years.
The interactions and relationships developed between the leaders came to symbolise a different way of working together on a shared future as an organisation and community.
The session will explore, through story and conversation, what was challenging, what worked, what didn’t, what was hopeful, what wasn’t, and what might help others on the journey.
There will be four presenters, two Aboriginal Leaders and two Non-Aboriginal, who will present several scenarios that came to symbolize the relationship of trust that was built through these experiences. Each will present a scenario, which will take the form of a real story from the perspective of each of the leaders.
How do we know we are safe. How do we know are heard. How do we know we have voice.
What happens when your organisation’s view diminishes my Culture and how do we work it out.
What is possible when we organisationally let go and join the work together.
