Grey Bruce Employers and members of the Owen Sound Chamber of Commerce are invited to apply for The School of Refl(Act)ion.

Created by the Diversity & Inclusion in Rural Workplace project, and led by the Owen Sound Chamber of Commerce and Welcoming Communities Grey Bruce, The School of Refl(Act)ion is a co-learning space designed for difficult conversations about racism and discrimination. The workshop will focus on critical reflection and collective action on successfully building relationships and creating positive and meaningful workplaces for Racialized People, Indigenous Communities, and People of Colour, including New Immigrants.

The program has been designed, piloted, and adjusted from the Critical Workshop Session #1, Beyond Unconscious Bias, to be offered FREE to all Owen Sound Chamber of Commerce members.
