HSABC Webinar: Decolonization - 2 Day Series

9:30 AM Nov 12 - 3:00 PM Nov 13, 2020

This webinar series will help non-Indigenous Canadians develop the skills, compassion and abilities to recognize and change systems and practices so they can play an active and meaningful part in Decolonization. Learning the true history of these lands, place-based understanding and looking at history through an Indigenous lens will allow self-reflection and a deeper understanding of the ongoing trauma and harm from colonization. By the end of the workshop, participants will be better able to demonstrate cultural literacy and discover ways to better serve the populations with whom they work. Participants should bring with them an open mind and an open heart to get the most out of what is sure to be an enlightening workshop.

This webinar is a four-part series that is run across two days:
