When it comes to awareness training, this is the course that started it all for Bob Joseph, a certified Master Trainer, who initially started delivering what was then called Aboriginal Awareness training in 1994. This training was originally developed for the corporate sector and has been extensively field tested with companies, retailers, nonprofits, consulting firms, and all levels of government across the country. It's really helpful for those just starting out or who are conducting TRC recommendation work.
A key piece of intercultural communications with Indigenous Peoples is their history. We help you understand their history so you will be more effective in your communications with Indigenous Peoples.
For your convenience, this training is offered onsite and online. The course content is also part of our Working Effectively with Indigenous Peoples® course, which is offered onsite and open to the public in our Training Weeks. Be sure to sign up yourself or book a private session soon.
Indigenous Awareness is available as a three hour, on-site training session and can be delivered on an as-needed basis in a location of your choosing.
