About the trainer
Danielle is a registered psychologist, consultant on happiness at work, and seasoned trainer. She has recently become a Certified Psychological Health and Safety Advisor with the Canadian Mental Health Association. Danielle has extensive experience in leadership and management positions and a keen interest in creating positive, healthy workplaces. She believes that great leadership is about creating workplaces in which people not only feel cared about, but are connected to their work and the company’s mission in a way that gives purpose, meaning and drives performance. In addition to her work with ACHIEVE, Danielle has a private clinical practice and is an active member of the Psychologically Healthy Workplace Committee with the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta. Inspired by her own love of learning, she draws on her leadership experience to create engaging and meaningful learner-centred workshops.
Diversity and cultural differences are often seen as challenges to manage within our work environments. However, they can also be valuable assets. This workshop helps participants to examine specific elements and dynamics of diversity and inclusion as they relate to culture, identity, communicating across difference, power differentials and experiences of discrimination. Tools and strategies will be reviewed to assist workplaces to promote inclusion and experience the many benefits of diversity at work.
