The Working in Two Worlds Forum will engage First Nations and Non-First Nations brothers and sisters to truth tell and have an honest reflection of our own fractured concept of race, cultural and identity. How do we challenge current systems to better facilitate and address the complex nature of working in two worlds for First Nations co-workers in mainstream services? While building strong allies who ensure cultural safety as a shared space of learning and of doing. This forum brings prominent First Nations Elders, Leaders, Cultural holders, Activists and Allies together to share knowledge, to challenge change and provide you with an insight to understanding the concept of working in two worlds, but more importantly to deconstruct the current systems and be agents of change.

It all starts with a YARN . Join us this November and be part of the conversation. W O R K I N G I N T W O W O R L D S F O R U M 2 0 2 2 K O O R I E H E R I T A G E T R U S T , F E D S Q U A R E . M E L B O U R N E . 1 5 T H O F N O V E M B E R 2 0 2 2
