Indigenous Education and Training

M.R.&Co, leveraging the principles of transformative education, has designed a three-phase program using an approach to Indigenous education that assists leaders, organizations and teams to engage with Indigenous peoples, communities and businesses. We use a skills-based approach in intercultural competency, conflict resolution, human rights, and anti-racism that align with the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada: Calls to Action report. This program uses the Wise practices for program design and each session is delivered by two trained, experienced facilitators.
