Following stakeholder engagement via surveys and focus groups we are pleased to host three training sessions to be held regionally in May. These free 3-hour in-person trainings focused on addressing key themes shared via the survey and focus groups about racism in recreation and its impact. Training aimed to help build participants’ capacity to address racist practices, policies and behaviours in the recreation sector.
Led by Robert Wright, expert Consultant and Therapist, participants were engaged in meaningful conversations about creating systemic and long lasting change in the recreation sector
Future Training Opportunities
We are excited to be hosting an Anti-Racism Summit on Wednesday 19th October as a pre-conference to the RNS Annual Conference. At the Summit we aim to launch the Anti-Racism Charter in Recreation as well as host educational opportunities and conversations on the topic in a Nova Scotia context.
RNS will be working on developing future training opportunities following the full analysis of data collected via stakeholder engagement. If you are interested in hearing about future training opportunities related to Anti-Racism for you or your organisation email Graham Mounsey at .
