Everyone’s Business

Building culturally safe workplaces and services

Everyone’s Business is a cultural capability training package for the NSW public sector workforce. It is designed to help you understand Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and how past policies and practices continue to affect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and communities today. 

Through this training, NSW public sector employees will learn how to support and build culturally safe work spaces and services across NSW. 

We are proud to work closely with Aboriginal communities and colleagues to create culturally safe spaces. Knowing more about the Stolen Generations and the impact of government practices and policies helps us to build more inclusive workplaces that are understanding and accepting of cultural differences. 

The training contains a calendar of significant dates and events, a cultural awareness journey, and trauma informed e-learning modules about the Stolen Generations. Each part of Everyone’s Business provides important first-hand knowledge and information about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their culture. We have worked closely with Stolen Generations survivors and their organisations, the Aboriginal community, and experts across the NSW public sector to develop Everyone’s Business.

Each NSW Government agency is responsible for delivering the Stolen Generations e-learning training package or equivalent training to their employees. To learn more about accessing the training, please speak to your manager or HR team.  

These cultural capability resources support recommendations 6 and 29 in the NSW Government's response to the Stolen Generations Unfinished Business report. The resources build cultural awareness of Aboriginal peoples past interactions with government, the diversity of Aboriginal people and culture, and significant Aboriginal events and celebrations.
