In Partnership With
Koorie Heritage Trust
In celebration of NAIDOC week 2021, Viktoria & Woods partnered with the Koorie Heritage Trust to participate in cultural awareness training. Taking steps to ensure we are educating and building a culturally responsive and respectful workplace and team.
“I would like to thank Bernadette & The Koorie Heritage Trust for their inspiring & thoughtful workshop which gave my team and I an incredible insight into the culture and history of the traditional owners of our land.
My team and I were inspired by your rich history, wonderfully unique characteristics and sense of humour. We gained a deeper understanding of your stolen generation and felt motivated by the strength and positivity of the Aboriginal people. This, together with the insight gained into your unique creativity and spirituality provided us with a deeper connection to your community which we will forever cherish.
Personally, I felt a profound passion to gain more knowledge and continue on this journey alongside the Koorie people. From all of us at V&W, we thank you for the privilege and opportunity.”
