This learning opportunity will offer a brief overview of the WRDSB’s commitment to equity, human rights, and Indigenous sovereignty. We will review some history, data, and current issues that have informed this commitment, as well as provide links to Ministry directives, mandates, and policies that support this direction. Our aim is that this session will help you understand why our school is committed to upholding the Human Rights Code and how we can all work to ensure equitable learning environments for all students.

A light dinner of pizza, wings , and salad will be served at 3:00pm with the workshop at 3:30pm.

Positionality in Indigenous Education

 Thursday March 2 2023 @ 4:00 pm  |  Education Centre, 51 Ardelt Avenue, Kitchener, Waterloo Room

Participants in this session will learn more about the importance of knowing and understanding yourself and your identities to inform your teaching practice and pedagogical approaches. We will consider the importance of honouring treaty commitments and responding to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission Calls to Action. We are learning about the need to avoid placing the burden of representation on Indigenous community members, while also avoiding appropriation.
