'Creating Partnership Intersections'
Inclusion Works '18 is an energizing management learning event that focuses on workplace inclusion and Indigenous/non-Indigenous engagements and partnerships.
Since the launch of the Inclusion Works series in 2009, more than two thousand people from companies and organizations across Canada, United States and Australia have attended. This unique executive learning format inspires a strong management following with current promising practices, systems, research, tools and strategies. Executives and managers develop their inclusion leadership and acquire new ideas, tools and strategies for your workplace. It is highly rewarding, rejuvenating and FUN - many people say it's the most value-filled event they attend each year.
Inclusion Works '18 will take your learning into the partnership and engagement realm:
- Discover how the most recent partnership research is informing on partnership competencies and organizational design
- Learn how the 9-point assessment tool will guide Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations and businesses to build effective partnerships together for purposes of employment, business or social development
- Learn the steps to conduct an engagement, build a relationship, and then formalize the relationship into a partnership. What are the steps that Indigenous organizations and companies take to build those engagements, relationships and partnerships together?
- Build your leadership muscle and acquire the organizational and management competencies needed so that Indigenous and non-Indigenous parties can achieve 'high-functioning, authentic and long-term partnerships".
Join us in Kelowna for the release of our new '7 Stage Partnership Model'. This innovative new partnership system explores the many intersections which create opportunities for Indigenous and non-Indigenous organizations alike.
Inclusion Works '18 will be the ONLY event where you can get exclusive first-hand experience working through this model in real-time discussions amongst peers. In our specially-designed learning sessions and plenary super-sessions, glean insights about each of the 7 Stages.
