Cultural Perspectives Series – Building Local Relationships

This workshop is a part of the Indigenous Perspective Workshop Series:

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

Please note these sessions 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. 

Once you register for a workshop, BCNPHA will share your email and name with IPS who will then contact you with a session link and learning resources. 

This three-hour workshop introduces participants to the key concepts of colonization, privilege and stereotyping. While encouraging meaningful relationship-building strategies with Indigenous community members and organizations, the learning is applicable to many areas in our professional and personal lives.

What you will learn:

  • Participants explore ways organizations and individuals can build strengths in areas
    that impact relationships with Indigenous individuals, organizations and communities
  • Identify examples where decision-making opportunities in the workplace can be
    affected by assumptions and bias
  • Identifying examples of how known and assumed privilege can impact relationships
    and communication with Indigenous families, individuals and organizations
  •  Defining cultural safety, identify what culturally safe practices look like, and how
    they can be introduced to the work-place
