Indigenous Perspectives Society: Centre of Excellence in Community Education (IPS) offers a 3-hour Building Local Relationships workshop, as one of our Cultural Perspectives courses. This training shares Indigenous cultural perspectives and promotes allyship.
In this workshop, participants explore ways both organizations and individuals can build strengths in areas that impact relationships with Indigenous individuals, organizations, and communities. It is strongly experiential, learning from the knowledge of invited speakers and by participating in sharing circles according to local protocols.
- Identifying 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
- Defining cultural safety, identify what culturally safe practices look like, and how they can be introduced to the work place
