The Government of the Northwest Territories (GNWT) offers Indigenous Cultural Awareness and Sensitivity Training called Living Well Together. There are 8 interactive modules included in this training. The average time to complete each module is 1 ½ -2 hours. However, the time will vary for each employee depending on how much of the Learn More (supplementary) content employees choose to explore.
The goals of this Indigenous Cultural Awareness and Sensitivity Training are:
- to create awareness and understanding of the impact of colonization;
- to have all GNWT employees understand their individual and collective role in reconciliation; and
- to provide the necessary foundation and tools to move towards cultural competency.
This training is mandatory for all GNWT employees.
As this training contains content that is emotionally challenging, additional discussion circle sessions can be found here: Discussion Circle - Indigenous Cultural Awareness and Sensitivity Training-Living Well Together
