This forum is targeted at service and senior managers, along with experienced and senior practitioners or team leaders. We encourage agencies to ensure representation at this inaugural and innovative event.

VAADA has been commissioned to run an AOD Workforce Development and Stakeholder Engagement Project for the North Western Melbourne PHN region. The current AOD CALD Forum is a key event of this project, focusing on providing agencies and senior workers with practical and highly relevant skills and knowledge to improve engagement with and responsivity to, CALD communities in the NWM region.

The morning of the forum is a combination of plenary, panel and lived experience presentions on academic and practical considerations outlining how to effectively engage with CALD communities, and be responsive to their needs in service provision.
The afternoon will offer break out streams to engage with colleagues and peers in facilitated sessions to explore and discuss the information presented in the morning, and through reflection and dialogue, to identify ways this new learning can be embedded in their organisation or practice.
The program includes speakers from –

  • Centre for Multicultural Youth
  • Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health
  • La Trobe University
  • Victorian Transcultural Mental Health
  • Neighbourhood Justice Centre

A final agenda will be circulated closer to the event.
Registration between 8.45am and 9.00am.
