AMSSA offers two workshops including our award-winning Safe Harbour: Respect for All workshop and a Cultural Safety: Diversity and Inclusion workshop. AMSSA can also provide customized workshops, presentations and dialogues.
Safe Harbour: Respect for All
Safe Harbour: Respect for All is an award-winning AMSSA diversity and inclusion training workshop for workplaces. We provide businesses, institutions and organizations with training to understand the value of diversity and inclusion, address issues of discrimination in the workplace, and attract and retain a diverse workforce and clientele.
The training is also great for individuals to start building awareness of diversity and learn important concepts.
We offer a 100% online e-learning module, live in-person or online workshops.
- To understand the key concepts of diversity, bias, prejudice, stereotype and discrimination
- To identify dimensions of diversity that exist in society and to understand the value of diversity
- To consider the different ways in which respect is communicated by different cultural groups and apply this learning to the concept of inclusion
- To apply learning through a series of scenarios and discussion that build awareness of how exclusion can occur
- To develop ideas for fostering inclusion in workplace settings with co-workers and customers/clients
Become aware of and gain an appreciation for diversity and broaden your understanding of culture.
Acknowledge the value of diversity and consider how you may benefit from recognizing diversity and get to know your co-workers and customers/clients on a deeper level.
Develop an understanding of these concepts and consider the implications of each in work settings, e.g. how your bias or stereotypes may influence the way that you work with other people or how you perceive customers/clients.
Learn some of the many different ways people communicate respect. This can help you consider the importance of cultural sensitivity and could reduce workplace conflict.
Become aware of some of the barriers that challenge inclusion through examples. This can help you make important changes to your work to enhance inclusion.
Consider how some interactions act to exclude others, and reflect on ways to make workplaces more inclusive. Discussion questions will prompt you to apply the learning to your work.
Reflect on your learning and list the ways you can take action to make your workplace and community more welcoming to diverse populations.
It’s not about just taking the training—it’s about how you apply the training that really matters!
Safe Harbour: Respect for All E-Learning Module
It can be difficult to bring all staff and volunteers together for group in-person training. The e-learning module is a great alternative for participation and learning important concepts to support diverse workplaces. The diversity and inclusion online training is also great for individuals looking to begin their journey in diversity and inclusion. The e-learning course offers a self-paced, flexible way to build awareness of diversity, and learn important concepts.
Cultural Safety: Diversity and Inclusion
Practising cultural safety through humility ensures that people become respectful of other’s cultural beliefs and acknowledge that their own cultural beliefs and attitudes have the potential, consciously or unconsciously, to influence the power balance between those they interact with. The Cultural Safety: Diversity and Inclusion workshop provides staff of business, institutions and organizations with training to understand one’s own unique perspectives, lenses and biases and identify their positions within the cultural groups they belong to.
