Cultural Perspectives Training Series: Building Local Relationships

Welcome to the fourth and final workshop in the Cultural Perspectives Training Series; presented by the Indigenous Perspectives Society.

In this three-hour session, come and engage in an enriching event where participants will delve into the profound impact of assumptions and biases on workplace decision-making. Together, let’s navigate the complexities of addressing privilege in our communication with Indigenous families and organizations. Define the crucial concept of cultural safety and unlock actionable strategies for fostering a culturally safe environment within your workplace.

In order to create a space that fosters conversation, interaction and reflection we will be limiting each workshop to 35 participants.

The last day to register for this session is September 3, 2024. 

Please note that this series will not be recorded. If you register and then are unable to attend, please let us know so that we can open up space for other participants.
