Leadership Training – Creating the Future through Dialogue
In October 2016 this agency presented a 3-day workshop in Canberra, for young women from around Australia, targeted to developing their leadership and communication skills.
This program is part of a long-standing collaboration with rural women’s organisations to build the capacity of women in rural and regional Australia in facilitating community discussion and engagement processes. Since 2000 over 35 workshops have been delivered throughout Australia. These workshops have created partnerships and understandings in communities and groups who often had little shared history in working together.
The project supports women to consider ways of more effectively responding to the issues they and their communities are struggling to manage, such as coal seam gas extraction, drought and community resilience. Long-term evaluation has found that all the women who have participated in the project have reported it as one of the most valuable opportunities they have had, both professionally and personally.

Cultural Safety Training
In 2015 this agency partnered with an Agius Consulting, an Indigenous consulting agency, to develop Cultural Safety Training, which is accredited by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) and the Australian College of Rural and Remote Medicine (ACRRM) as part of their continuing professional development program for doctors.
The workshop is suitable for anyone wishing to develop greater cross-cultural awareness and understanding and explores the importance of building culturally sensitive approaches in order to deliver services, which promote the dignity, well being and empowerment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
The program has been delivered in partnership with AOGP a leading national provider of training to health care professionals. This work has led to the development of an Arts Project, which will bring Indigenous artists and health practitioners together to create art works, which explore the concept of cultural safety and deepen the connections and understandings between Aboriginal people and communities and health professionals.

Cost Benefit Analysis
In 2014 this agency worked with the local Aboriginal community in Willowra in Central Australia to develop a mediation service modelled on the highly effective work of the Yuendumu Mediation and Justice Committee.
We initiated and secured funding for an Independent Cost Benefit analysis, which found that for every dollar of cost the work of the Committee was returning $4.30 – a truly outstanding return by the standards of the World Bank.
The CBA led to the Commonwealth Government providing increased funding to enable the Committee to continue its powerful and important work in breaking the cycle of disadvantage and distress caused by community conflict.
Since then in partnership with the economists we have worked on a number of Cost Benefit Analyses which have enabled services and agencies to ensure the true value of their services and programs is understood by funding agencies and others.
