Nova Scotia Human Rights Commission
The Commission offers human rights education to organizations, business owners, community groups and individual staff members around the province.
Workshop participants work together to explore human rights both personally and collectively. Commission staff meet with clients to discuss their needs, set specific targets and tailor the workshop to the client. Individual needs assessments are also conducted. Workshops hold a maximum of 25 participants. Areas covered include race relations, disability, diversity, discrimination, employment equity, harassment and defining a respectful workplace.
Workshops encourage dialogue and active participation, and help organizations and individuals understand barriers to equity and inclusion in the workplace. Human rights education workshops cover developing and implementing policies, conflict resolution and organizational change. Follow-up sessions are available for those interested in implementing programs in their own organizations.
