Each year South Okanagan Immigrant & Community Services (SOICS) host an annual event to promote the values of tolerance and racial equality in the South Okanagan through Respect Network funding. This year, we are using the funding to host a 2.5 hour workshop which will raise awareness on how body language and choice of words can be impactful in building tolerance.
The facilitator is a PhD student from UBCO who aims to incorporate a simulation game to raise awareness on various elements that contribute to cultural conflict. She will also present scenarios of racial discrimination and how to apply our newly developed knowledge to diffuse those remarks.
