Cultural Responsiveness Mentor Training

IAHA Cultural Responsiveness in Mentoring is the next step after completing our Cultural Responsiveness program. Cultural Responsiveness in Mentoring workshops builds on participants’ existing knowledge of formal and informal mentoring relationships and cultural responsiveness with skilled facilitators. 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 knowledge is 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 one’s behaviour on others

This program can effectively support organisational change by championing a sustainable approach to cultural safety and responsiveness within the organisation. IAHA can also provide further advice and supports for workforce development to meet specific workplace or workforce needs.

It would be a requirement to complete Level 1- 2 in the Cultural Responsive course as a minimum before registering for the Mentoring program.
