Saskatchewan Administrative of Tribunals Association (SATA) sponsored event.
This one-day virtual course is designed to engage participants in dialogue and discussions. You will learn to recognize unconscious bias. You will review culturally competent and humble ways of creating administrative justice.
Today, Canadians are diverse in their racial, ethnic, religious, and linguistic backgrounds. We represent over 200 ethnic groups. We are of different sexual orientations, abilities, and gender identities. Many have disabilities – some visible and some not. We are diverse in many ways. In 2015 the Truth and Reconciliation Commission issued calls to action for governments and educators. These encourage training in cultural diversity, particularly about indigenous culture.
Administrative Justice professionals need to explore cultural competence and cultural humility. They must develop the skills to conduct their work fairly and ethically. Their decisions must be based on the evidence they receive. This one-day session will help you incorporate an inclusive and respectful environment into your practice. You will examine the possible effect of cultural differences on communications, assessing evidence, conducting a fair proceeding, decision making, and decision writing.
Participants will begin to think about systemic discrimination. They will consider the work needed by organizations that wish to move towards equity.
This course is approved for 7 ethic CPD hours by the Law Society of Saskatchewan.
NOTE: This course was previously known as Cultural Competencies.
