Breaking Barriers ~ Achieving Inclusion By Removing The Obstacles That Stand In The Way

Did you know that most people do not know whose land they live on or why it’s important?

Are you aware that Canada’s workforce is currently experiencing a labour shortage which means an increase in diversity?

Join speaker, author and podcast host, Kristy Ware, as they uncover the six main obstacles that block the way to an inclusive culture at school, home, and in your community. You will also gain valuable strategies to move through each obstacle that will change the way you view yourself, your students, your colleagues, and the world around you. Come prepared to embark on a personal learning journey leading to stronger connections, collaborations, and communities.

In this 90 minute interactive workshop you will learn:

  • What the terms diversity, equity and inclusion mean (DEI)
  • The 3 keys to DEI
  • The six main obstacles that block the way to inclusion: unconscious bias, fear, resistance, ignorance, lack of practice and lack of awareness of privilege
  • Strategies to break down each obstacle
