***Culturally Committed Providers are individuals who are demonstrating a commitment to improving the cultural safety of their practice through participation in the Culturally Committed Membership Program. A Culturally Committed Provider does not claim cultural competence or perfect practice, but rather demonstrates an attitude rooted in humbly acknowledging oneself as a lifelong learner and a commitment to improving the cultural safety of their services. It is Members responsibility to know and abide by the advertising regulations of their regulator.
If you are interested in our workshops but aren't ready to commit to a Membership,

Three-Part Series Featuring
Preparing For Our Journey Together
October 20 6pm PST
We will explore life in a traditional village before colonization in order to better understand how values impact relationships and increase collaboration.
Colonization of the Village
November 17 6pm PST
We will look at the history of colonization in North America through a non-blaming and non-shaming perspective. Participants will learn about resilience and acts of resistance during multiple waves of trauma.
Our Reconciliation Journey
December 15 6pm PST
We will explore systemic racism and reconciliation, and discover how we can work together to change systems to improve equity.
Kathi Camilleri facilitates experiential reconciliation workshops (Building Bridges Through Understanding the Village©) and strategic planning workshops (Paddling Together©) for diverse groups of people and organizations in communities across Canada and the U.S. Kathi’s work, including keynotes and webinars, is focused on the revival of culturally-based values in order to increase collaboration among all people.
"...Elders talk about how you never go to visit someone empty handed, meaning when you go to ask someone a question, you'd bring them an offering. A fish, a blanket, some beads, something."

At Culturally Committed, we are determined to do this work in a good way. This is why all of our workshop contributors receive compensation, and honorariums are provided to our incredible Mentors.
Phase 2 -- Tentatively Launched Winter 2021
Members will receive confidential feedback -- which will be collected from clients, submitted either through the website or to the dedicated email address managed by Culturally Committed. The intention is to support providers in becoming more attuned to how to offer culturally safe services, and will utilize feedback to implement adaptations to their practice.
Registered providers will be offered resources to promote their Culturally Committed identity:
a pin to provide a visual symbol to patients -- that their provider is committed to improving the cultural safety of their practice.
a window decal to affix on the door of the office.
Printable graphics to display in the office waiting room, to demonstrate registration in the Culturally Committed program, and to provide information on how it works.
Printable post-appointment handout cards with instructions, and a place to put the clinician(s) name(s) -- to aid in the feedback process.
