2010 Discrimination Prevention Forum
Circle of Awareness, Cycle of Growth
Winnipeg November 23-24, 2010
The Discrimination Prevention Forum is an avenue for human rights stakeholders to share best practices on emerging issues of discrimination in the workplace. It gathers hundreds of leaders and decision makers from government, private sector and non-profit organizations across Canada.
This year, the Canadian Human Rights Commission's Discrimination Prevention Branch is teaming up with its National Aboriginal Initiative office to focus on the advancement of Aboriginal people in the workplace. The theme, Circle of Awareness, Cycle of Growth, conveys that knowledge and cultural sensitivity are key to fostering positive relationships in the workplace. Participants will interact with panel members and peers in an informal setting and put their skills to use in hands-on workshops.
- Strategies for removing barriersSo in the pecking order of victim groups, would you say Aboriginals rank before or after Muslims (a subject which, confoundingly, the forum is not about to address)?
- How to build positive mental health in the workplace
- Ways of accommodating religious practices
- Human rights in Aboriginal organizations
