  • Ending the year on a training note

    The final Intercultural Awareness and Communication training for the 2012 year was held on 11 and 12 December, with eight diverse participants learning how to deliver the training to others.

    The training is a core part of the work of the Office of Ethnic Affairs. It aims to improve the skills of individuals so they can work effectively with people from diverse backgrounds and establish effective communication, interaction and workplace relationships.

    These trainees can then become trainers themselves, championing ethnic diversity in their own workplace.
