Inclusion of Indigenous/Native American Peoples In The Workplace focuses on providing both existing non-Indigenous employees and also new Indigenous employees with cultural awareness; cultural understanding; and cultural sensitivity training about each other so that they can build together a mutual bond of understanding, respect, and team spirit in the workplace.

As Peter F. Drucker has stated, “people really don’t resist change; It’s the way changes are introduced in organizations that they often object to”.

Our seminar provides a pathway of knowledge, insights, and “do’s” and “don’t” so that you can be as successful as possible in achieving inclusion of Indigenous/Native American Peoples in your organization.

We are glad to customize this training to address your organizations specific challenges and requirements.

The cultures of Indigenous Peoples and non-Indigenous people is very different. They have a different mindset on several the cultural dimensions which make up their Cultural DNA such as their viewpoints, core beliefs, core values, way of life, and other important “cultural drivers”.

Indigenous Peoples and non-Indigenous people have also live very different life experiences which has shaped them.

To enhance the practical and value-adding aspects of our our inclusion training, I spent a day at the largest First Nations reserve in Canada – the Six Nations of the Grand River (only reserve in North America with six Iroquois Nations living together). During my time on the reservation, I visited a number of places including the Six Nations Council Administrative Office, restaurants, and other reservation facilities. Every Indigenous Person I met was reserved, polite, helpful, and friendly.

I also had the pleasure of  meeting with the Director of the Grand River Employment and Training (GREAT) Centre.  We discussed awareness and understanding Indigenous Peoples as well as the challenges of the day-to-day life of Indigenous People on the reservation.

The culture of the Six Nations of the Grand River is rich and admirable. For example, the Six Nations is the oldest living Participatory Democracy on earth.

Indigenous Peoples are very proud of the rich diversity of Indigenous band cultures that have existed for over 1,000 generations. The survival of their band’s/nation’s Indigenous cultures, traditions, and ways of life is a powerful core value of Indigenous Peoples.

Despite the past history between Indigenous Peoples and non-Indigenous people, Indigenous Peoples want to primarily focus on the future so as to build an engaging, trusting, and lasting positive relationship with non-Indigenous Peoples.

Inclusion of Indigenous/Native American Peoples In The Workplace has been designed and developed to help clients achieve that engaging, trusting, and lasting positive relationship in an organization.
