As people-centred organizations and businesses, co-operatives are called to action to be inclusive. What policies, procedures, conversations, and practices should we be considering when trying to build more inclusive co-ops? This webinar is the second in a two-part series to help participants be more familiar and fluent in issues of indigenous rights and inclusion, as as well as to give tangible examples as to how we can build more inclusive organizations. Representatives from Vancity Credit Union, the Saskatoon Community Clinic and Arctic Co-operatives will be sharing.
