For nonprofit organizations, working safely and respectfully among racial and cultural difference is critical. Movements like Idle No More and Black Lives Matter, and the work of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, have helped us more fully understand and acknowledge the presence of racism and colonization in our country, cities and organizations. Work in strengthening Organizational Cultural Competency is a way in which organizations can be active in dismantling racism and building cultural safety within their organizations and the broader communities.

 

Workshop Overview

United Way’s Learning Centre is pleased to partner with Jackie Hogue of J.
