As we start off our new year, we look back at 2014 and at the many people that have participated in our workshops, reflecting with the old Chinese proverb “My greatest teacher is my student”. Each and every participant has not only shared their stories of success and challenges, but also solutions, innovation, and hope. Something which we can all never have enough of.
2014 had seen Inclusion WA’s Professional Development service work with Local Governments and Not-For-Profit organisations from Perth to Sydney NSW, Margaret River, Mandurah, Esperance, Northam, and more!
We go wherever we are needed, to ensure that communities and staff are doing all they can to connect people to each other.
Remember, we specialise in tailoring our workshops to suit YOUR ORGANISATION to get the most out of the people you work with.
- Community Inclusion
- Community Development
- Disability Awareness
- Professional Boundaries
These workshops have generated great feedback from attendees and line-managers in shifting thinking and culture within workplaces to help you reach your outcomes, retain staff, be creative in your job, and learn to “work smarter, not harder”.
“Wilton Kerr is a really inclusive facilitator.. which is rather apt given the topic! He allowed us to question and challenge the cultural complexities we face when trying to do the ‘right’ or ‘correct’ thing – which is actually really difficult when we find ourselves trying to keep up with the constant changes in ‘PC-ness’.. and it is good for me to think critically too, because it helps us to properly engage in the session.”

Inclusion WA consulted on the very successful local government project “My Life, My Place” by the Town of Victoria Park. This is an inclusive initiative which profiled 7 local Victoria Park residents, (most of them living with disability), showcasing their unique stories, strengths, and passions. The Town of Victoria Park understood that in order to make an inclusive community, everyone had to be treated equally as empowered individuals, instead of focusing on just needs and challenges.
Portraits and documentaries were displayed around the area, showing residents and visitors that our community is filled with regular people, each with their own differences and backgrounds, and that everyone can be included into community.
