but how does it work?
I live and work in Australia. Do I need to learn about other cultures?
Australia is a multicultural society with a culturally and linguistically diverse workforce. According to 2021 Census data, more than fifty per cent of people were born overseas or have at least one parent born overseas.
There are a multitude of benefits to learning about each other’s culture, values and belief systems. We all have a role in making Australia a more inclusive country for all to work, live and enjoy.
My organisation is already inclusive. What benefit can we gain by engaging Aperion Skills?
Apeiron Skills services are designed to support all workers in the community service industry. Discrimination comes in different forms, and we sometimes may not be aware of it. Even though you may think discrimination doesn’t exist in your organisation, indirect discrimination is often present and can significantly affect individuals.
Why is learning about communication important when our workforce speaks English well?
At Apeiron Skills, we believe that effective communication, beliefs and values lens through which we see and understand the world around us play an essential role in a harmonious and prosperous workplace. According to research, about 90% of our communication is nonverbal. Therefore, by improving our skills in non-verbal communication processes, we will have more significant opportunities to prevent workplace conflicts due to ineffective communication.
Why should I learn about bystander response to racism?
It is illegal to separate people because of their skin colour. Racism is believed to be unacceptable in our society. However, racism is still experienced by many non-white Australians. Everyone can make a difference by standing up to racism and improving our bystander response. Apeiron Skills workshops will provide practical strategies to take action safely and stop racism in our society.
