Working with Indigenous Communities:

For organizations wanting to be knowledgeable about Indigenous History; inspired to learn more and be respectful to the traditional protocols of the regional and national Indigenous Communities.

  

We will achieve this by:
  • History: understanding the limitations in the history books and the importance of hearing Indigenous History

  • Protocol: we all have protocol; how can we move forward in business while respecting protocol

  • Being a good Ally: understanding what being a great Ally looks like and how to empower team members to be good Allies

  • Homework: continuous learning creates healthy working environments and stronger working relationships
