DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

Diversity: Encompasses the distinctiveness and uniqueness of individuals or groups, spanning various aspects such as age, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, language, nationality, parental status, physical and mental abilities, race, religion, sexual orientation, skin color, socio-economic status, work and behavioral styles, as well as the diverse perspectives influenced by nation, experiences, and culture.

Inclusion: Diversity naturally exists within societies, while inclusion requires deliberate creation. Our aim is to establish an environment that fosters support and a sense of welcome for all individuals.

LAND ACKNOWLEDGMENT

In utmost respect for the Treaties established on these lands, we affirm that We Are All Treaty People. We acknowledge the enduring impact of colonization and the profound harm inflicted upon Indigenous communities through the residential school system. As an organization, we are dedicated to creating an inclusive space that amplifies Indigenous voices, celebrates Indigenous culture, and honors Indigenous heritage. We firmly believe in the strength of unity and will collaborate with Indigenous communities to foster justice, equity, and reconciliation.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Westman operates within the boundaries of Treaty No. 1 & No. 2 Territory, which encompasses the ancestral lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples. Additionally, we acknowledge the Metis Nation as the original inhabitants of this region and recognize that the water we consume originates from the Anishinaabe First Nation of Shoal Lake.
