Currently we offer the following development opportunities to support more inclusive workplaces:
A ‘deadly’ introduction to cultural competence
Deadly Cards are a simple yet highly effective tool to guide facilitated conversations with both small and large groups. The cards were developed helps participants engage with, and understand the importance of, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander inclusion.
Participants choose a card and share a story or reflection based on the visual and written prompts – but that simple act also starts people on a journey towards cultural competence and reconciliation.
Features of the Deadly Cards pack include:
- 64 unique cards–each one represents a cultural concept via a picture on one side and a series of questions or provocations on the reverse.
- Made with durable materials suitable for regular use in a variety of environments.
- User-friendly instructions provided on how to facilitate a session using Deadly Cards.
- A poster about the process for display during your sessions.
You can buy the cards and use it to develop your team, or ask us to run a ‘Deadly Cards in Action: Intentional Yarns’ workshop to give you clear ideas on how to actively use the cards in your workplace or with your own clients. Our two-hour introductory workshop is run by experienced facilitators with expert tips on incorporating the Deadly Cards in your programs, practices and ongoing work or learning environments.
