The Cultural Competence Program improves cultural competence in the Australian workforce by delivering large scale, cost effective training across a mobile platform. The program is a collaboration between IES, SBS and Multicultural NSW.
The program is designed to enhance social cohesion in Australia and improve outcomes for organisations operating in an increasingly culturally diverse society. It features a new curriculum, state-of-the-art online courses and will develop a future community of trainers with the aim to deliver face-to-face and online training to over 500,000 Australian workers by 2020.

The Cultural Atlas is a free online resource that provides comprehensive information about Australia’s migrant populations as well as the world’s diverse cultures. The atlas educates in cross-cultural attitudes, practices, communication and business skills. This resource has compiled widespread observations of cultural behaviour to one place, accompanied by up-to-date research and statistics.
All materials are supported by widespread consensus in observational research and consultation with members of Australia’s multicultural community. The broad country specific information is also supplemented by real migrants’ stories of the cultural differences they’ve encountered in Australia. Their personal experiences provide depth and understanding at a more individual level.
Some say the Cultural Atlas is the ‘Wikipedia of cultural awareness’.
