CRWDP Webinar Series

You are invited to attend Webinar #25, as part of the CRWDP Webinar Series, taking place on Wednesday, November 17, 2021 at 12:00 to 1:00 PM EST.

This webinar will be presented Robyn O’Loughlin. Robyn’s presentation is entitled Colonialism and inclusion in the workplace: a look at northern educators.

Presentation Description: In this presentation, Robyn explores how colonial behaviours are seen in the workplace with a focus on educators. Using data that is from her dissertation work, educators’ understanding and implementation of the Ontario anti-bullying framework policy in school allows a glimpse into the ways settler colonialism remains in the workplace and its impact on inclusion in the school setting. There will be a discussion of how anti-bullying legislation can prevent future harm for students as they work through the school system. The sample in this study consists of 12 educators working in northern Ontario. The participants shared their personal background, their understanding of Indigenous cultures, history and politics, and their understanding of the anti-bullying framework.
