Join the Ontario CLRI at the coming Walk With Me culture change conference for a transformative half-day workshop that delves into the essential principles of advancing equity, diversity and inclusion in the long-term care (LTC) context. This workshop is designed to empower LTC leaders and team members with the tools and knowledge to create a more inclusive and affirming environment for residents, care partners/caregivers and team members. A resource package will be shared with participants which includes learning resources, a toolkit and posters which can support LTC homes in their journeys.

Supporting culture and identity is a critical aspect of person- and family-centred care. As the workforce and resident population continue to become increasingly diverse, the need for thoughtful, intentional efforts to support inclusion and belonging will only continue to increase. This workshop features an in-depth exploration of how to move forward from awareness-raising to action:

Learn practical steps to create inclusive and affirming environments in LTC homes.

Explore the concept of cultural humility as a foundational framework for fostering genuine understanding and respect.

Discuss how to shift from bystander to ally through a range of scenario discussions.

Learn about products that have been developed by the Ontario CLRI that can support your equity, diversity and inclusion journey.
