myfuture | Supporting First Nations kids toward career success: A yarn with educators

Location:

Online

Date:

March 12, 2024

Time:

1:00pm
to 2:00pm
AEDT

We all want a good job with a good wage, right? Sure, but our definitions of ‘good’ aren’t always the same. And who is the ‘we’ referred to by each of us? It’s important that we all understand each other’s perspectives to support our whole community in achieving their employment goals. Unfortunately, First Nations kids often struggle to express their cultural values in their schooling and employment, struggling to balance the values and motivations of themselves and their mob with those expected in their schools, the world of work, and Australian society at large.

For educators, recognising key cultural differences, and how certain cultural values are privileged over others, is a key starting point to better supporting First Nations kids in their career journeys.

Tracy Ryan, Educational Designer (First Nations) at Charles Sturt University, invites you to join her in a yarn about how First Nations success is defined and shaped. Tracy will offer some ideas about First Nations cultural values around education and employment, to start a conversation about how educators can help First Nations kids envision, plan for, and achieve the kind of career that works for them and their community.
