Hillna trains professionals and institutions in Cultural Humility. She specialises in raising awareness of people’s cultural biases and prejudices and shines a light on how this affects us all especially in the workplace.

Committed to serving disadvantaged communities, Hillna has a vision that everyone, irrespective of their cultural or socio-economic background, deserves the opportunity to access the very best support, advice and counsel available from whatever source.
