Where: BMO Institute for Learning - 3550 Pharmacy Ave
On Friday September 30th and Saturday October 1st, the Ontario Public Health Association (OPHA) in partnership with Health Nexus, will be hosting a two day transformative learning event.
As we work with others to influence policies and practices and address the determinants of health, the need to build equitable partnerships and networks is essential. Learning how to incorporate intersectionality and anti-oppression in collaborative leadership practices can promote empowered work environments, dynamic partnerships, allowing us to more effectively support those we serve.

  • If you are trying to incorporate an intersectional social change or social justice framework in your organization, community practice, and among your collaborative partnerships and networks.
  • If you want a dynamic training experience that will deepen your knowledge of intersectional anti-oppression frameworks and leadership practices.
 ** Please note that this course is intended for those who already have base knowledge and/or experience of any form of anti-oppression.**
What are the objectives of this Learning Institute?
  1.  To provide a learning environment to explore intersectional anti-oppression and collaborative leadership practices, both successes and challenges.
  2.  To strengthen your leadership skills in this area and to provide sustainability by establishing wider systems of support and networking opportunities.
  3.  To provide learning resources that can be used in your organization, and in community practice that support collaborative leadership development and implementation.

Le vendredi 30 septembre et le samedi 1er octobre, l’Association pour la santé publique de l’Ontario (OPHA), en partenariat avec Nexus Santé, organisera une activité d’apprentissage transformationnelle d’une durée de deux jours.
 
La création de partenariats et réseaux équitables est essentielle dans le cadre de notre travail avec d’autres intervenants pour influencer l’élaboration des pratiques et politiques et aborder les déterminants de la santé. L’apprentissage des méthodes visant à intégrer une approche intersectionnelle et anti-oppressive aux pratiques du leadership collaboratif peut favoriser la création de milieux de travail mieux outillés et de partenariats dynamiques, et nous permettre ainsi de mieux soutenir les gens auxquels nous offrons des services.
 
L’institut d’apprentissage vous en apprendra davantage sur l’approche anti-oppressive dans le cadre d’une démarche réflexive, créative et interactive, vous permettant ainsi d’étoffer vos compétences, vos connaissances et votre trousse d’outils afin de renforcer votre compréhension et votre capacité à apporter des changements.
 
N’oubliez pas de marquer sur votre calendrier les dates du vendredi 30 septembre et du samedi 1er octobre, de 8 h à 16 h 30, pour participer à cette occasion d’apprentissage unique. Nous réunirons des formateurs et panélistes chevronnés spécialistes des domaines de l’intersectionnalité, de l’anti-oppression et du leadership, et nous espérons que vous pourrez vous joindre à nous.
