Our team and partners work together to support people to thrive, be happy and contribute their unique strengths and abilities. We want to see a collaborative approach to a sustainable and equitable future.

For the Individual

Navigating (self)Employment CoLab

We work with individuals through a range of learning modalities. Focusing on collaboration, Navigating (self)Employment projects offer work-related experience and connection.

By the end of a CoLab you will have:

  • Tools and resources that lead toward meaningful work;
  • A good understanding of workplace rights, value and expectations in business and the work environment; and
  • A strong plan and connections to help you achieve your work goals.
For the Organisation

Research, data, story-telling & reporting

Do you collect data and do not get the chance to analyse it, or use it? Do you have systems and processes in place that make it easy to measure and monitor your work? Are you optimising your value i.e. unique offerings; staff; clients; suppliers; experience?

Let us help you identify and fill in the gaps: from research, development, implementation, evaluation and sustainability. We do what it takes to get to know your organisation and stakeholders, we seek out ways of working efficiently, effectively and having fun along the way.

As an added bonus, a portion of our income goes toward educational projects for young people.

  • I have worked with Tania on multiple youth, multicultural and community projects through the formative years of my career. Tania was and continues to be, an amazing support person for me in my personal and professional growth. She is dedicated to career development and training, and has an amazing insight into how individuals navigate experiences and absorb information, making her an incredible asset in networking and training. She is supportive, engaging, committed, and most importantly, passionate. I absolutely trust in every endeavour Tania takes, and look forward to seeing the real value and growth that she creates in communities and in individuals through Redwoods Work Collaborative!

  • I had the pleasure of working with Tania on a local youth committee. Her ability to build meaningful relationships and aptitude for collaborative networking allowed her to bring my ideas to life, empowering me to see the difference young people can make in the community. Tania has an admirable passion for encouraging others to grow, and then creating development opportunities to enable this. Working with Tania helped equip me with the communication and networking skills I needed to secure my first industry work experience. I have no doubt that Redwoods Work Collaborative will allow many others to benefit from Tania’s incredible skillset like I have!
