About this event

Next Steps in ReconciliACTION Program

Our 10 hour Next Steps in ReconciliACTION Program, specifically for settler Canadians who have already attended at least two or more of our Elements of Truth: BEFORE RECONCILIATION workshops and are ready to take their conversations and learning to the next level.

This program offers a welcoming, safer space to continue your journey toward deepening your awareness and understanding of your roles and responsibilities in unsettling colonial narratives and practices within your organizations and personal lives.

We will examine everyday acts of anti-Indigenous racism, practice Oops & Ouch moments, and explore actionable ways to challenge the colonial status quo.

Participation will be limited to a maximum of 30 and it is necessary to commit to all 4 of these program sessions to ensure you leave with a baseline of tools, knowledge, growing confidence, connections and shared learning to move your commitment to Truth and Reconciliation forward.

In partnership with Andrew Greer, Managing Director: Purppl

Andrew Greer is the Managing Director at Purppl (Purposeful People), a social enterprise accelerator. Purppl helps social enterprises and social purpose organizations build sustainable business models and sustainable impact models.

Here are a few words from Andrew on the challenge, the journey, and the workshops.

"Systemic challenges like climate change or reconciliation require a collaborative approach. The way forward is inclusive, equitable, and cross-cultural. Not acting is no longer an option.”

“Unsure of what to do or scared to take steps? Me too. I invite you to learn with and from others in these workshops. Collectively we improve Indigenous cultural inclusion and equity to make way for a different future.”
