Creating Success for Indigenous
Employees and Candidates: How Reconciliation Action Plans
support an Inclusive Workplace
Workshop Level 3 | 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Indigenizing a workforce involves much more than increasing diversity numbers or updating hiring policies. It requires an organization to conduct a holistic review of their organization and an evaluation of their strategic approach to recruitment and retention.
In this session, trusted advisors, settlers and allies from Creative Fire Gabrielle Foss and Haleigh King will share how organizations can foster a more inclusive workplace by developing a Reconciliation Action Plan. Attendees will learn how Creative Fire has supported clients across Canada in the development of a focused and tactical approach to ensure Indigenous Peoples are engaged by an organization, as candidates or employees, while creating an inclusive environment that also contributes to the advancement of Reconciliation.
