BCACC Announces New Online Diversity Training Series Open to Members, Non-Members, & Students
Every day, incidents of racism and discrimination come to light. These stories may leave us feeling angry, helpless, and unsure of how to create positive change.
Diversity, inclusion, and reconciliation are not new issues, but they are urgent ones. Working with people who have experienced the trauma of racism and being “othered” requires helping professionals to be culturally literate, to examine their own blind spots and areas for learning, and to feel empowered to create truly safe spaces for clients.
We have created the six-session Online Diversity Training Series to facilitate conversation and learning. Take a deep dive and attend all sessions, or pick and choose which training topics suit your schedule and needs. Through the end of 2021, industry experts Myrna Lashley and Len Pierre will walk us through these issues in our first three sessions and help us to build our cultural competency. We arrive at the work from a place of openness, authenticity, and desire to learn and unlearn.
The sessions in this series are open to BCACC members, non-members, and students. We invite counsellors, social workers, psychologists, teachers, DEI professionals, mental health and community workers, cultural coordinators, educational assistants, and other helping professionals to join us.
We welcome you to a space that is inclusive and safe to explore and ask questions.
Join us for our first session in September with Len Pierre. We’ll explore how to co-create strategies for critical self-reflection and what it means to establish culturally safe practices.
Learn more about the series and register here for the first session here. We hope to see you in September!
