Emergency Management Webinar: Integrating Cultural Safety and Humility Skills in Emergency Management Services

February 26, 2020 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. (Pacific Time)

JIBC's Emergency Management Division, in partnership with Emergency Management BC, is hosting its next Emergency Management Webinar on Integrating Cultural Safety and Humility Skills in Emergency Management Services

Purpose: The Province of BC has made a commitment to true and lasting reconciliation through passing of the Declaration of Rights of Indigenous Peoples Act (DRIPA) and the Calls to Action of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC). Reconciliation is broad and touches all aspect of life, society and industry.  Implementing the DRIPA can “bring to an end all forms of discrimination and oppression wherever they occur.”[1] UNDRIP is a foundational human rights tool  to build a better province. Each of us have a powerful ability to encourage, role model and lead change. A common understanding needs to be fostered in British Columbians for permanent progress to be made. Intergenerational impacts are recognized for both indigenous people and all Canadians. Inclusion and integration of Indigenous knowledge and practice are key to restoring health and justice more broadly and the process of reconciliation.  

How do we create a culture shift that is open and makes space for Indigenous people, knowledge and practice? Join us for this webinar to learn more about wise practices EMBC is embracing in leading a culture shift.
