The Toolkit for doing Reconciliation at Work


Category: Tag:

An in-depth course to guide organizations on the planning and implementation of reconciliation plans, like a strategic plan.  Start with a review of your organizational progress to date with a baseline audit, and work through the minimum actions for reconciliation across the organization, then dig into the unique work only your organization can do for reconciliation – your value-add. The final product of this course are draft workplans completed by every team, to be coordinated into an organizational reconciliation plan.

This learning product is intended to be ideally completed by an organization together, with each team applying the learning on a lesson by lesson basis.  While individual learners are welcome to take this course, the benefit is in discussing the learning and application with teams within your workplace.

Bulk pricing applies for organizations.  Please contact The IRG for more information.

Time to complete:  Teams and organizations will complete within 12-15 weeks.  Please plan to spend 1 to 2 hours working through each lesson on your own time, and most lessons include individual exercises. Then get together in your teams to review that lesson’s content and associated team exercise(s), about 1 to 2 hours each.
