This interactive, engaging workshop will examine ways to develop, maintain, and protect relationships with diverse and BIPOC communities using a Medicine Wheel framework. Through the series, participants will explore options for assessing individual and organizational anti-racist/anti-oppressive practices and identify concrete actions for becoming anti-racist.
- Strategies for including diverse & BIPOC communities in our work.
- Increased awareness of bias and how to mitigate the impact on relationships.
- Better understanding of anti-oppressive organizational practices.
“I appreciated the opportunity to dig deeper into the concepts and terms, and experience and questions that are all around us on these topics. It was great to have the semi-formal structure to the process, with lots of chance for comments and participation. The breakout groups were a helpful part.”
“Angela was an excellent facilitator, who brought both humour and empathy to the conversation. She was very responsive to comments and questions from the group. She was very down to earth, while providing valuable expertise and knowledge about anti-racist practices.”
“I definitely feel supported to take next steps within my organization and to bring more colleagues into the process of conversation and actions.”
