DIVERSITY

Intro to Diversity/ Cultural Competency

In this session the participants will learn how diversity impacts their role as peace officers and also gain more of a broader understanding of how becoming more culturally competent can positively impact their day to day lives. Throughout the session participants will also be encouraged to analyze stereotypes and personal biases and assumptions. Since we all operate with particular biases and assumptions it is critical that we take the time to reflect and engage in dialogue in order to increase our self-awareness and to facilitate and enhance cultural competency. Our hope is that this session will provide the participants with a comfortable learning environment and also generate lots of discussion. The facilitators will also create an interactive and engaging space to set the tone for an amazing week ahead.


Hate Hurts

This half day training will equip you with the tools and capacity to deliver workshops one-two hours in length with youth in your school or broader community. This training will provide you with an enhanced understanding of diversity and hate/bias as well as competencies to effectively respond to hate. A key component of the workshop will be to engage and empower our youth and/or community members as an approach to fostering discussion and awareness of hate and its impacts. Since the reporting of these types of crimes and/or incidents are low ( approx. 80 % going unreported ) we hope that through education and awareness that we can encourage members of our communities to feel more comfortable reporting to the appropriate authorities.


Native Awareness Training

He speaks about the power of choice, compassion for all worldviews and the “special gift “ that all human beings were born with.
