Introduction to Child & Vulnerable Person Protection for LGBTQ2+ and Youth serving organizations
We each have a responsibility to promote safe practices that protect children, young people and vulnerable persons from harm, abuse and exploitation.
Let’s talk about it and learn together from an 2SLGBTQ+ perspective in this virtual workshop with Taylor Carlson from Moose Jaw Pride and the Saskatchewan Pride Network.
In this workshop we will discuss the law, terms and definitions, 2SLGBTQ+ experiences and perspectives, the philosophy of child and vulnerable person protection and your obligations to children, young people and vulnerable persons as a caregiver, responsible adult or 2SLGBTQ+ supporting organization. We will also discuss best practices for events, programs, facilities and venues for organizations.
Diversity & Inclusion at Work: an introduction to the experiences and perspectives of 2SLGBTQ+ and other equity-seeking people and families for the Tourism, Hospitality and Accommodations Sector
People and families in Moose Jaw depend on a healthy tourism sector in many ways and so we’ve partnered with Western Economic Diversification Canada and Tourism Moose Jaw, among others, to support and celebrate businesses like yours through Virtual Diversity & Inclusion Workshops that will introduce you and your team to 2SLGBTQ+ and other equity-seeking travelers experiences and perspectives.
We want to invite 2SLGBTQ+ and other equity seeking people and families to experience Moose Jaw’s notoriously fabulous restaurants, hotels, amenities, attractions and events in ways that are genuine, positive and inclusive.
We will be offering front-line and supervisory workshop opportunities virtually through June 2021 at no-cost to small businesses in Moose Jaw.
Participating businesses will receive certificates of completion and be included in a fully-funded across Saskatchewan marketing campaign that invites people and families to experience your destinations, spaces and places. As well, participating businesses will be listed in a special Tourism Moose Jaw Directory in print and online.
Reach out to Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org for information on how to participate at no-cost.

Facility, Workflow and Policy Audit
In the quest for a more diverse and inclusive workplace, equity is an important and critical component that companies must consider to meet their needs and obligations to employees and clients alike. It is not enough to attract and recruit diverse talent—there must be an active effort to ensure that all employees feel a sense of belonging and that policies, practices and procedures within the company foster equity.
Creating an equitable workplace means assessing for barriers and putting systems in place to ensure that all employees have the same advantages. To ensure that your organization is creating an equitable environment, an equity audit can be conducted in partnership with Moose Jaw Pride and the Saskatchewan Pride Network to discover opportunities where you may best create an equitable environment for all.
