Putting Reconciliation into Practice: Leadership Program - For public sector leaders

The program is a professional development opportunity for organizations and executives to explore in-depth how reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples can be put into practice. Starting on Oct. 6, this offering of the program will be tailored to leaders in the public sector.

The program focuses on building a better understanding of Indigenous history and experiences in Canada and explore best practices through a series of interactive sessions and discussions with guest speakers and Indigenous leaders with the objective to increase the participants capacity to plan and implement changes in their organization.

Over four modules, participants will take concrete steps towards building their own capacity to advance Reconciliation by:

• Improving understanding of Indigenous history and experiences;

• Examining strategies and best practices on the spectrum of engagement and co-development;

• Building relationships with Indigenous communities; and

• Establishing a common understanding and basis for moving forward.

Who Should Participate

The program is for executives, management teams and organizations in the public sector who seek to better understand how they can take concrete steps now to practice reconciliation.

The Program

The program will provide an opportunity for open discussion with Indigenous leaders, community and peers to learn from other’s lived experiences. Time will be dedicated to ensure that all participants have opportunities to interact with facilitators and one-another to share on-going learning.

Program Features
