we all have the opportunity to be change agents
Always good to share ideas.
Importance of learning and knowledge of what is happening
Value of continuing the conversation
stories help educate
What should our mediation model look like, what model of practice should we use to ensure it doesn't support systemic racism?
It was an amazing learning experience from experts in various industries
This webinar series is accessible to all and much appreciated - no cost to participate, no costs to travel and attend a symposium
Further reflection on personal biases and personal awareness of systemic biases.
Pilot and celebrate successes, start small and grow
his session was a fantastic endeavor by ADRIC, and the fact it was free was even better. I truly think that another whole series could be offered on the topic in a few months time.
Themes: building awareness, reflection, diversity beyond colours, understanding our humanity, visual and invisible diversity and discrimination, reflection is good - action is needed, what are the ways, need more session with a balance of giving info, sharing and providing resources, think about who is in the sessions and are we missing some of us, how to attract them to our sessions
moving forward, learning to speak up and taking the consequences; powerlessness v. moving forward, orgs. not following through on their diversity policies; bringing understanding to the larger group, appreciating harm v. our own privilege
We need to intentionally incorporate Indigenous knowledge seamlessly with Settler practice. if we are thinking of reconciliation, we cannot spit this up by creating an Indigenous stream. Its not about recruiting Indigenous and minority people as mediators.
I agree with Sue Vandettelli's comments above.
we have people from coast to coast here
more tools and sessions on having courageous conversation, systemic reviews of our practices…
Thank you for all the sessions! Thinking from everyone in the sessions helped expand my own thinking and reflecting on approaches to these topics.
