Happsa Group staff took part in Cultural Awareness Training today as part of NAIDOC Week celebrations.

The tailor-made training was put together and facilitated by Happsa’s charity partner, the Long Walk Foundation and included an overview from Supply Nation on Happsa’s Corporate Membership.

Group Managing Director Operations Harry Georgiou said that the team at Happsa had grown significantly in the past year and the cultural awareness training is a way for the new starters to embrace our efforts in awareness and reconciliation.

“We want our people to be informed and have a good awareness and understanding of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. Awareness and understanding are key steps we are taking in our journey,” Harry said.

“We already have a corporate sponsorship in place with the Essendon Football Club and this year have extended this to include the Long Walk Foundation. We are proud to partner with them and are pleased that they have been able to facilitate the training for us.”

The session included a Welcome Dance by the Djirri Djirri Dance Group, an overview of Melbourne’s Traditional Owners, The Long Walk and why Michael walked, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Flags meanings, Aboriginal Nations and information on the diversity of Indigenous peoples Language groups in Victoria.
