Hello my name is Michelle and I identify as she.
What do you identify as?
I was incredibly lucky to spend the afternoon learning about principles for inclusion with Kim Katrin Milan. I learned much about cultural, race, gender, sexual, LGBTQ and transgender inclusion. I am positive we only scratched the surface in this session. It was enlightening, insightful and definitely one of the best trainings I have had the opportunity to attend in the last few years.
If your organization is not offering you diversity and inclusion training beyond what is written in a policies and procedures manual, please question why and ask for this kind of workshop. Toronto is the most diverse city in the world and we are going to run into many different cultural norms. Ask questions and create an opening for conversation. Part of the way we treat people how they want to be treated is to simply ask.
