$190 (excl GST) for SSPA members; $220 (excl GST) for non-SSPA members for participation in the full programme of three webinars plus a review session.

An opportunity to deepen your understanding of Kaupapa Māori well-being, explore how implicit bias and racism affects your work and gain practical tools to empower yourself and the whānau you work with.

Anton Blank (Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Kahungunu) has developed a training programme in partnership with an Auckland based SSPA member, ATWC.

This programme is designed specifically for social service organisations and is offered as a series of 3 one-hour webinars plus a 4th review session covering:

  1. The impact of racism and bias in the social services setting, and using tools to identify and mitigate personal and organisational attitudes
  2. Kaupapa Māori well-being theory and its practical application
  3. Applying the theory, models and tools in a practical way within our organisations 4. Developing a strategy to embed the model across your organisation.

The positive, non-confrontational approach to racism moves beyond grievance to focus on the capabilities and potential in workers and whānau. It takes a whole of organisation approach and is open to and encourages participation from all staff.
