"'Solidarity & Inclusive Leadership' is a five (5) day workshop that uses cutting-edge and powerful methods including expressive arts and body-based practices that have been used effectively in many social justice settings but are relatively new to the Canadian labour movement. These modalities allow us to explore and apply inclusive leadership practices and learn new skills to build cultural competencies for union and community leadership in the context of social justice.
Through movement, drawing, singing, writing, dialogue and reflection, participants explore how identity, unconscious biases, privilege and power influence our leadership and working relationships. Participants will gain awareness of strengths and challenges as we create together and apply new leadership skills and competencies. This program provides participants with the opportunity to learn new skills and practice solidarity in the group and then take these skills back to their workplaces and communities.
The workshop is accessible to people of all abilities. No prior experience with the arts is necessary, as we will draw upon everyone's innate creativity.
Become a more creative, embodied leader and deepen relationships with people from different cultural and social backgrounds so that we can truly lead together to create the change we want to see in the world.
This program is for leaders, social justice change agents, union members, activists, artists, creatives, and those who want to be in deeper relationship with themselves and others."
