Cultural Capability Training and Consultancy

Citizen Tasmania works collaboratively with commmunities to create an inclusive and more fair society that upholds human rights.

As part of these efforts, Citizen works to provide businesses, government, and organisations with the tools to address systemic inequality, taking an intersectional approach that considers the impact of migration status, race and gender. Citizen provides cultural training and lived experience consultancy to help transform workplace culture and allow individuals and organisations to reach their full potential.

We offer holistic support through the following services:

  • Cultural capability training to help create a workplace culture that recognises the importance of diversity and inclusion.
  • Employment and recruitment support to help create a culturally diverse workforce, increasing the proportion of culturally diverse employees within businesses and organisations.
  • Consulting service led by people with expertise and lived experience, providing intersectional insights to ensure equality, equity and accessibility throughout service delivery and policy design.
  • Developing culturally inclusive communications materials to help ensure that diversity and inclusion efforts are reflected on websites, newsletters, brochures and other organisational materials.
