The key difference are the skills; experience; and unique background of our facilitator, Jolleen Hicks.
“I have been privileged in my learning of Aboriginal Cultures. For the first seventeen years of my life, I was exclusively part of the Aboriginal Community of Roebourne, located in the Pilbara region of WA. My cultural learning extended to my Ngarluma and Yindjibarndi cultures through my family and Community. I identify as both Ngarluma and Yindjibarndi through my great grandparents who raised my mother, Joan. Through this foundational Community learning, I can appreciate the learnings of Aboriginal people that have always lived in their Aboriginal Community and/or had minimal exposure to the western system that operates outside of their Aboriginal Community.
The main difference to my Cultural Learning is my exposure to many separate Aboriginal Cultures from across Australia; my appreciation of the diversity of Aboriginal Cultures that are present in any one location; my understanding of the barriers to engagement; and my development of learning and strategies to specifically respond to such barriers.
I am passionate about teaching and value the opportunity to be part of the Cultural Learning journey of individuals and employers.”
