The Indigenous Cultural Safety (ICS) Learning Series is a monthly webinar series focused on Indigenous cultural safety.
It was developed in partnership between PHSA Indigenous Health and the Southwest Ontario Aboriginal Health Access Centre (Provincial ICS Program), and guided by an advisory council of Indigenous and non-Indigenous leaders in BC, Ontario, Canada and internationally.
The ICS Learning Series provides an interactive, online forum for discussion and debate on issues related to Indigenous cultural safety, and supports professionals in advocating for, developing and implementing culturally safe policy and practice in their organizations.
At each session, guest speakers present on topics related to Indigenous cultural safety, covering a wide range of areas such as: reconciliation and cultural safety; taking action to advance cultural safety in the workplace; and interrupting or responding to incidents of racism and discrimination.
Each 90-minute webinar will be hosted online using the WebEx platform. Audience members are encouraged to submit questions through WebEx, and the facilitator will select a few to ask the speakers.
