What exactly is Truth & Reconciliation and what does it mean in our workplaces?
Feel comfortable discussing Aboriginal issues that are relevant to us both personally and professionally at a joint CPRS/IABC program on Monday, November 19 at First Nations University of Canada.
As a participant, you will be drawn in through interactive games, quizzes and the use of humour, making for a pleasant learning experience. Your participation is key to the program’s success.
Our facilitator is John Lagimodiere, a well-respected entrepreneur who has been hosting Aboriginal awareness seminars for a variety of organizations since 1998. John is a member of the Métis Nation of Saskatchewan.
What you will learn:
- Terminology and stereotypes
- Socioeconomic issues
- Treaty exercises on such topics as residential schools, taxation, education, housing and justice
- History around The Indian Act
- Employment (hiring and retention) and workplace protocols
In our busy and complex workplaces, this workshop on Truth & Reconciliation will allow participants to ask the questions they might have feared but need/want to know when working with Aboriginal and Métis colleagues, hiring, communication strategies or planning special events.
Bring your questions as we will discuss incorporation into our day to day communications work!
We will see you on November 19.
Cost: $90 (includes parking and snacks)
