Indigenous & Intercultural Awareness at Work XCUL 1201

Cultural Studies Part-time Studies Course

Course details

This course along with XCUL 1101 will give leaders background information which will help with recruitment, training, retaining, and supporting the local Indigenous community members. It will aide in reconciliation by giving employers the tools to indigenize their HR processes and it will promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in workplaces. Students will learn how to communicate and celebrate cultures and differences rather than perpetuate bias and stereotypes, and how to provide an inclusive working environment for not only Indigenous staff but those from various cultures.​
