Cultural Safety Training Sessions:
I’m Culturally Competent, Now What?
Truth & reconciliation, cultural safety, cultural competency, and cultural agility are all the buzz in some circles but many of us are unsure how to reflect or implement these ideas into our work and life. These sessions will provide an overview of history, colonization, residential schools, and the current reality Indigenous peoples face to move beyond buzzwords and into action.
Discussion and experiential exercises will encourage participants to recognize their own limitations, biases, and barriers when it comes to truly transforming how they think, work, and exist in the world. These workshops are for anyone wanting to influence change within Indigenous systems and communities—moving forward requires each of us to be personally responsible for our perceptions and actions.
