Learning Circle workshop: Connecting Indigenous Cultural Safety and Addressing Racism in the Health Care System

Talk:
Connecting Indigenous Cultural Safety and Addressing Racism in the Health Care System with Harley Eagle

Overview: Since making public in 2020, the In Plain Sight report has revealed and addressed Indigenous-specific racism and discrimination in healthcare in BC. As some parts of the healthcare system strive to bring life to the recommendation, there has been an increase in trying to understand a way forward. In this workshop, Indigenous Cultural Safety consultant Harley Eagle will make the connection between Indigenous Cultural Safety and addressing systemic racism and identify some possible ways forward.
