Full Day EVENT | 9:00 AM-4:30 PM

People from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds frequently experience barriers to justice when participating in court and tribunal processes.

This event is for VCAT members only. 

Intercultural communication skills can mitigate the challenges that people from diverse backgrounds experience. 

In this workshop, you will explore the concept of cultural competence in a court and tribunal setting. You will also learn culturally responsive strategies to help you work effectively with people from diverse backgrounds. 

You will explore: 

  • the concept of culture 
  • practical skills for adopting a culturally responsive approach 
  • unconscious bias 
  • how to work with interpreters.
