Why is this webinar topic important for environmental professionals?

Indigenous awareness training is an integral component in creating environments where cultural diversity is appreciated, and where people from diverse cultural backgrounds communicate with each other respectfully. Ultimately, the goal of Indigenous Awareness is to help non-Aboriginals work with Indigenous people in ways that convey respect.

Environmental professionals who work with Indigenous communities can benefit from this topic by exploring pathways to develop community-based and community-driven action plans and relationships.
