Day 3 - Cultural Kaleidoscope


Join us for a transformative experience on Day 3 of our conference, where we delve into the crucial issue of elder abuse through the rich tapestry of cultural and linguistic diversity.

EAAA and ARAS have partnered with the Multicultural Communities Council of SA (MCCSA) to lead an engaging and interactive workshop on 'Developing Cultural Intelligence.' MCCSA’s presenters will bring their extensive knowledge and lived experience to this topic.

This workshop isn't limited to any one culture; instead, it uses insightful case studies from Chinese, Indian, and Greek communities to equip you with the principles of cultural intelligence essential for interacting with Australians from various cultural backgrounds.

In this dynamic session, you'll:

  • Deepen your understanding of cultural intelligence with practical tools and strategies that promote diversity and inclusion
  • Boost your confidence and effectiveness in managing culturally diverse situations, especially in elder care and support settings
  • Enhance your intercultural communication skills, ensuring respectful and equitable interactions with elderly individuals, their families, and carers from diverse backgrounds
  • Engage in meaningful discussions about developing both personal and organisational cultural competence to better serve our ageing multicultural communities.

This is a unique opportunity to foster open, non-confrontational, and psychologically safe conversations about cultural diversity. Gain the knowledge, skills, and confidence needed to thrive in our multicultural environment and make a real difference in the lives of older Australians from all backgrounds.

Don’t miss this chance to expand your cultural horizons and enhance your professional capabilities.

We look forward to seeing you there!
