IPS Organisational Capability facilitator Katie Clarke, a Noongar woman from the Wardandi tribe in Busselton, recently had the incredible opportunity to fly onto Kurruma country to facilitate a seven-day course designed to minimise barriers and build confidence towards employment for four young Aboriginal women wanting to work in FIFO roles.
IPS designed and delivered the course for Momentum Business, to trainees on seven days work experience.
“It was my first time to be up in the Pilbara and it didn’t disappoint. Flying into one of FMG’s newest camps Eliwana, 90 kilometres North West of Tom Price and seeing the Hamersley Range was incredible. The camp was remarkable and so was everyone who I worked with. One of the biggest highlights for me was interacting with the young women. Discussing blind spots, stereotypes, active listening, and hearing them discuss barriers in their world that could now be tackled or looked at through a different lens”. - Katie Clarke, IPS Facilitator
