“Having worked with Ms Dianne Borella for several years, in education, health and community development activities, I want to thoroughly commend her passion, understanding and enthusiasm for increasing cross-cultural awareness, and mutual respect among all cultures. Dianne’s long experience in remote, regional and urban settings gives her a rich background from which to advise on improving cultural understanding, and on effective education and health programming.
People skills are a special gift for Dianne, and she brings friendly, respectful relations into settings where suspicion and reluctance might otherwise dominate. Her long term work with young Indigenous sports people provides good background for knowing how to engage those who need nurturing into new experiences. And she is a confident public speaker and workshop facilitator at all levels, from the boardroom to the remote community store.”

“Dianne‘s involvement in the Health and Community sector is typified by her well-developed ability to connect with people from community and facilitate their involvement with the Health system.
Dianne is a well-known and respected figure in the AFL community where she is Aunty to numerous young people and has helped them to develop their lives in a holistic manner.
Dianne understands the issues in the health and disability sectors and how they impact in mainstream and life in remote community.
Dianne’s work with Rotary is further evidence of her genuine desire to engage and work towards building the capacity of the mainstream and remote community.”

Cultural Awareness about the importance of animals to the Indigenous people is essential. It helps to address any issues that may arise by allowing Council staff to communicate and work effectively without judgement and/or prejudice. It assists in building and maintaining relationships which then brings the Darwin community together as a whole.
After attending Dianne Borella Cross Cultural Awareness training it provided me with in-depth knowledge and cultural awareness when working with animals and the Indigenous communities.”

“Di has a fantastic knowledge of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and the barriers that may be faced when interacting with them. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and Di was a brilliant presenter.”
