Working Effectively with Diverse Cultures


This is an ACWA endorsed CPD program offered by Evolation Learning.

This course deals with the cultural awareness required for effective communication and cooperation with persons of diverse cultures.

Australia is one of the most culturally and linguistically diverse nations in the world. In the 2006 Census, Australians reported more than 250 different ancestries with many people claiming to have two ancestries. The Census also recorded that almost 400 different languages were spoken in homes across Australia with 200 of those spoken publicly.

Multiculturalism is a very valuable resource in that it provides challenges to the way we think and act and provides the opportunity for people to practice innovation and resourcefulness in the workplace. Multiculturalism also provides the opportunity for people to become more familiar and connected with the world that exists outside of the communities within which they primarily interact. It is important then to not only understand the value of multiculturalism, but to harness that value in very practical ways. This process begins by proactively learning about other cultural backgrounds.

This online course covers the following topics:

  1. Reflect cultural awareness in work practice
  2. Accept cultural diversity as a basis for effective workplace and professional relationships
  3. Communicate effectively with culturally diverse persons
  4. Resolve cross-cultural misunderstandings
A certificate of completion is produced after the course is finished.
