Beyond 'Getting Educated': Real Responses to the Calls to Action
So, you took some webinars, you're reading and reflecting, but you are still not actually responding to the TRC and the MMIWG report. And your agency/program/institution still feels pretty colonial. This seminar specifically focuses on action in reconciliation work and what that could mean in multiple social work spaces.

This Webinar is FREE for Ontario Registered Social Workers (RSW), Registered Social Service Workers (RSSW) and Students of Social Work and Social Service Work Programs. Please note: If you are not an RSW, RSSW or student of these programs in Ontario, you may still attend but will be charged a nominal fee of $30.

This Employment Ontario project is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario.

When ASL interpretation is required, please indicate the preference in the registration form. The incorporation of ASL interpreters will depend on availability.

Jennifer Poole
Jennifer or Jen Poole (she/her) identifies as a cis, white, first generation settler to T’karonto. She was part of the first cohort of the Decolonizing Education Program at the Centre for Indigegogy and has been finding her way back to spirit and out of a deep colonial coma ever since. In her professional life, she is an Associate Professor in the School of Social Work at Toronto Metropolitan University where her work sits at the intersection of oppression, madness and health. While supporting and companioning learners is her professional priority, current re-search projects focus on settler sanism in the helping professions, the effects of white supremacy on grief and loss as well as interrupting colonialism in pedagogy and research. She is a bonus Mom, a peer supporter, a TEDx talker and a very silly auntie. She is happiest outside.
