Module 3: Accessing Settlement Services as a Human Right

For Executive Directors, Managers, and Board Members

Using the Ontario Human Rights Code (OHRC) as a framework, this training is specifically designed for management. It is intended to raise awareness about access as a human right, and to support decision makers in creating and supporting organizational changes. Through practical work and discussion, managers and board members will be better prepared for some of the staff resistance that can hamper organizational changes and present challenges.

Management and board members will leave the workshop with an understanding of:

  • Human rights legislation

  • Explore employee/employer resistance to LGBTQ+ Positive Spaces

  • Examine the roles in creating and maintaining organizational culture

  • Review policies and procedures within the agency

  • Create an action plan for organizational changes
