National Reconciliation Week—27 May to 3 June—is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.

The National Reconciliation Week 2022 theme, “Be Brave. Make Change.” is a challenge to all Australians— individuals, families, communities, organisations and government—to Be Brave and tackle the unfinished business of reconciliation so we can Make Change for the benefit of all Australians.

The WA AASW Branch is proud to host Belinda Cox during Reconciliation Week.

Topic: Ethnocentrisms and a journey of Culture and language

We invite you to meet Belinda Cox from Djirrily Dreaming – a proud Noongar woman with expertise in sharing her Noongar Culture and ways.

She has generously offered her time, to create an intersection between Social Work and working with Aboriginal people in a bid to educate Social Workers on what it is that we should know when working with Aboriginal people and families.

Belinda will start with ethnocentrisms relevant to the field and take us on a journey of Culture and language and yarn about what we should know as women’s business; men’s business… and that space in the middle that is nobody’s business!

Belinda brings a vast knowledge as well as an approachable and reciprocal forum to challenge stereotypes and bring questions and invite discussion in a safe space in the spirit of Reconciliation and improved outcomes for everyone involved.

Please register for this workshop and enjoy an evening of open and safe discussion.

Presenter: Belinda is a Kangeang /Bibblemum Noongar woman (Yorga) practiced in the ways of traditional cultural medicine plants and natural remedies. Djirrily Dreaming
