IES enviro-scapes | Cross Cultural Awareness Training

The IES Enviro-scapes Cross Cultural Awareness Training (CCAT) program is designed to:

  • Educate - providing understanding of differences in relation to language and communication methods, identity and community, family relationships, spirituality and conflict
  • Empower - providing tools and skills to manage differences, conflict and reconciliation
  • Elevate - assist companies to create an environment that creates opportunities for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people to work together successfully


Workshop content focuses on:

  • Aboriginal culture, protocols, heritage, customs and traditional practices
  • The cultural diversity of Aboriginal people
  • The history and importance of the ‘Connection to Country’ and why this is a fundamental and essential element to Aboriginal people
  • The Impacts of past and current Government Policy
  • How to undertake business and consultations in a sensitive, respectful and appropriate manner
  • Ways to build better engagement between Aboriginal people and the communities in which we live and work.


IES enviro-scapes can provide workshops in a variety of formats. These include:

  • 5 hour half day workshop
  • 8 hour full day workshop
  • 2 day Cultural Immersion Program


The strategic delivery of our CCAT program aims to initiate creative thinking and provide a call-to-action to identify opportunities for participants to apply this understanding and awareness to:

  • Develop an understanding of our differences in order to successfully communicate and collaborate across cultural boundaries
  • Build an understanding of differences in perspectives that may impact on the behaviour of others
  • Identify ways to ensure conflict is avoided by raising awareness that culture constitutes the cornerstone of our identities, the ways we make meaning, what is important to us and how we view / interact with others
  • Create opportunities for participants to demonstrate how they can apply this understanding and awareness in their business environment and in particular when working with Aboriginal people and communities.
