Putting Reconciliation into Practice III: Session 1 – Understanding
A Public Policy Forum Learning Program
Now on its third offering, the Public Policy Forum is once again presenting this professional development opportunity for public service executives and non-profit leaders to explore in-depth how Reconciliation with Indigenous Peoples can be put into practice. This learning program features four learning modules that will better equip participants to take concrete steps in policy development towards renewing this important relationship, and to do so in an inclusive way.
The federal government is committed to a renewed nation-to-nation, government-to-government and Inuit-Crown relationship with Indigenous peoples. The learning program represents a further step towards the implementation of Truth and Reconciliation Commission Call to Action #57.
It’s been an inspirational learning experience. It’s the best learning experience I’ve had since joining the government 26 years ago. Coming into my role, I had little to no experience working with Indigenous communities. Now, I have a better sense of the scope of the work.” – Jeff, series participant with ESDC in Vancouver
The learning program is for executives, policy directors and practice leads in the public service, non-profits, academia and private sector organizations who seek to better understand how they can take concrete steps now to practice Reconciliation.
*The seminar series will be in English.
The sessions are facilitated by a team of experienced moderators and involve presentations by leading experts including Indigenous leaders, discussion, critical thinking and interactive learning. The learning program will focus on considering concrete policy solutions to some of the topical and important issues associated with the Indigenous agenda.
