Cultural Diversity and Volunteering in Greater Bendigo
Thursday 25th October
Bendigo Library, Activity Room 1
This is the second time we will run this 3-hour workshop where you will learn about how volunteers and those working with volunteers across Greater Bendigo can better understand and support cultural diversity.
This workshop will:
– Build your cross-cultural understanding to better support your volunteer work
– Increase your understanding of multicultural communities in Greater Bendigo to support interculturalism and social cohesion
– Support your organisation to be welcoming to culturally and linguistically diverse clients, customers and volunteers
You may find the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHRC) Workplace Cultural Diversity Tool helpful in assessing your organisations cultural competency before beginning this workshop. https://culturaldiversity.humanrights.gov.au/.
Community Volunteering Strategy
The City of Greater Bendigo is developing a new community volunteering strategy with the aim of fostering a culture of volunteerism in the community.
They want to hear from all volunteers in Greater Bendigo to gain a greater understanding of why people volunteer, what type of volunteering they prefer, and identify any barriers preventing them from volunteering.
All members of the community who have been, are interested in, or are a current volunteer are encouraged to participate. It is as easy as completing a short anonymous survey:
The community survey is open until 31 October 2018.
