Pre-Conference Workshop "Roots of Tolerance" - Session Full

Tuesday May 8th, 2018 at the Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre, 1:00pm - 4:00pm

Roots of Tolerance - Registration details included in document

"Getting to the Roots of Tolerance" is an interactive workshop that builds awareness of issues impacting Indigenous people. Participants engage in activities and facilitated discussions about some of the most prevalent stereotypes impacting Indigenous peoples. The activities provide a medium through which participants can examine the overarching narrative framework that informs and embeds these stereotypes. By connecting the systemic nature of social inequities to the everyday experiences of Indigenous people, participants have the opportunity to consider concepts and language that will enhance their engagement on this topic.

This component of the program will be offered to up to 40 participants and has no cost. Funding support for the training portion of this session has been provided by the Southwest Local Health Integration Network. This pre-conference session will enhance learning related to Objectives 1) To unpack the root causes of Indigenous health inequities; and Objective 4) To come together to build respectful relationships.
