Understanding cultural diversity and demonstrating cultural competence in the workplace is now an expectation across the community sector. Cultural diversity includes and extends beyond ethnicity and it is important to recognise diversity in all its different forms.
This unit explores characteristics of diverse groups such as culture, race, ethnicity, disability, religious or spiritual beliefs, gender, including transgender, intersex, generational, sexual orientation/sexual identity; and the diversity of Australia’s Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander cultures.
Key to this work is understanding the importance of self-awareness about our own attitudes and biases and how we can address communication barriers. We will examine how to contribute to the development of professional relationships based on the appreciation of diversity and inclusiveness in the workplace.
