Cultural Safety and Leadership with Harley Eagle in partnership with UBC Learning Circle

Event Date & Time

  • November 15, 2018
    10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Event Description

We welcome Harley Eagle back to the Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Health, presenting from the UBC Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Technology, and live streaming through the UBC Learning Circle for a conversation on cultural safety and leadership.

It can be challenging for health and education professionals to ensure culturally safety without a system that supports it. In this thought provoking session, Harley will explore important elements for leaders to consider in creating Culturally Safe organizations. In this era of reconciliation, creating culturally safe organizations has become a significant priority for many health care organizations and educational institutions.

This webinar will:

  • describe how Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action apply to health and education organizations
  • explore the personal and organization elements leaders need to consider when implementing Cultural Safety measures within their organization or departments
  • how leaders and organizations that have already implemented reconciliation steps may strengthen their efforts


Harley will invite questions and comments to further the dialogue and deepen understanding on this issue.
