‘The GENERATE Working in First Nations Cultural Contexts program is more than just a training package, it is a life changing experience that forced me unlearn and then relearn everything I thought I knew and ultimately helped me re-evaluate the way in which I see the world. The course was personally and professionally challenging but I was able to achieve more than I expected through the generosity, wisdom and experience of the trainers and guest presenters. Understanding and coming to terms with race, colonisation, whiteness and privilege is not easy, and nor should it be. But this work is essential to living a wholehearted life. I cannot recommend this program highly enough.’
– Craig Rogers, 2017 participant
