Addressing Australia’s Lost Conversations: Deep Collaboration webinar 2022

In this FREE webinar, join Deep Collaboration’s Mark Yettica-Paulson and a panel of guest speakers for a conversation on what Australia needs to address to learn new ways of leading together.

A project of Collaboration for Impact, Deep Collaboration is created by First Nations and other multicultural Australians, sharing their ideas, experiences and expertise with one goal in mind. That goal is to find a new way to work and lead together. This website describes a way of working that follows the values and steps needed to create this shared leadership.

At its core is an open source platform that has extensive resources and tools to build skills in working across power, race and difference whilst in collaboration. This is complemented by training and events. At a time of increasing polarity Deep Collaboration offers a pathway to collaborate for organisations, teams and individuals working on complex challenges, as one enabler of the systemic change required to achieve systemic change on racial equity.


Who is it for?

Anyone interested in finding better ways to work and lead together, with First Nations and other multi-cultural Australians.
