Today is Orange Shirt Day and the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation, a time to reflect on the ongoing trauma caused by residential schools and Canada’s painful history with Indigenous communities. Today is also a day to remember and honour the children and survivors of residential schools, their families, and communities as we work towards reconciliation.

In order to recognize this day properly, we will not be posting any new content on our social media and digital channels. We encourage you to join us in using this day for meaningful reflection and learning to better understand the challenges faced by Indigenous people historically and today.


This session will provide an introduction to the concept of unconscious bias and how it presents itself in professional settings. You will learn about the impact of gendered, ableist and otherwise harmful language in day-to-day interactions. You will learn more about systemic barriers and biases that professionals from communities who have long been under-represented in the Canadian media system face on a regular basis. Leaders will come away from this session with tools they can use to better understand and help eliminate the presence of bias in their own organizations and workplaces.
