About the seminar:
In this seminar we will explore our experiences adapting the Community Ethics Toolkit for use in First Nations communities. We draw upon the presenters’ cumulative experiences of working with First Nations communities both on and off reserve in Ontario and Manitoba. We will describe the process of designing the workshops; which included being mindful our own values, potential biases (positive or negative) and the current cultural-political environment of reconciliation. Being cognizant of presenting in environments where long-term power imbalances and inequities exist, workshop development was guided by the principles of cultural humility, respect, integrity and collaboration. We will share insights on our successes and challenges with this work. The session will conclude with an open discussion for future opportunities and collaborations.
This seminar is free and open to the public. No registration required. It will also be webcast live and then archived on the JCB website.
