Cultural Responsiveness Mentor Training

IAHA has developed a new training product, IAHA Cultural Responsiveness in Mentoring, which links the IAHA Cultural Responsiveness Framework with the Mentoring Program. With skilled facilitators, Cultural Responsiveness in Mentoring workshops build on participants’ existing knowledge of formal and informal mentoring relationships and cultural responsiveness. This supports the development of the health and related workforces more broadly, to ensure that cultural safety and responsiveness is a priority and that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander knowledges are privileged, acknowledged and respected when undertaking a mentoring relationship.

Workshop participants further develop knowledge and skills in:

  • mentoring to support capabilities in cultural safety and responsiveness
  • effective practice in working with personal and communication styles
  • supporting proactivity and leadership in cultural safety and responsiveness
  • Understanding of self and the impact of ones behaviour on others

This program can be effective in supporting organisational change through championing cultural safety and responsiveness within the organisation with a sustainable approach. IAHA can also provide further advice and supports for workforce development to meet specific workplace or workforce needs.

PLEASE NOTE:  This training program is currently being developed into an online delivery method and will be ready for participation by 2021.
