Aboriginal & Workers of Colour - Week 2

Duration: 
5 Days
Prerequisite:

Aboriginal & Workers of Colour - Week 1

This is a two-week program designed for Unifor members who are Aboriginal and/or workers of colour.  It takes place over 2 one-week sessions.

It’s an incredible opportunity for local unions to build the strengths and skills of members whose voices and leadership are desperately needed if we want to respond to today’s challenges.  For participants, this program is designed to give you the tools you need to make a difference in your union.  We discuss and strategize around removing barriers to participation of, and decision-making by, Aboriginal and workers of colour.  We focus on the challenges of doing anti-racism work in the union and in society more broadly. 

This program is intended to build the skills, knowledge and confidence of Unifor Aboriginal and workers of colour members to increase their activism and take up positions of leadership within the union.
