About our conference line-up:
keynote speaker | TALLI OSBORNE | Differences are Beautiful
- During this presentation, Talli will speak about overcoming adversity while growing up in an incredibly unique family. She will share her personal struggles with perceptions of self and her journey to embrace the differences. And, she will draw on her personal journey to show how you can “never judge a book by its cover”.
presenter | ADITI LOVERIDGE Grief Recovery Specialist, Mindfulness Meditation Teacher | Changing Perceptions Around Pregnancy & Infant Support Loss
- This presentation will cover the myths around grief, discuss how these myths become the tools in which we try to heal and then discuss the tools that we can use to be more supportive. Attendees will understand how society views hinder how people process loss and learn ways to support loss more effectively.
presenter | NICOLE WILLIAMS, CD(DONA), CHR | What Does Allied Birth Support Look Like
- This presentation will focus on how allies can provide holistic support to the pregnant person and family to create the best health and developmental opportunities for the baby, as well as the parental health? And how to support the goals and outcomes of the family by family-led planning.
featured speaker | KATHI CAMILLERI, Master of Arts in Leadership, Cultural Safety Consultant, Facilitation of Village Workshop© Series | A Village Around Every Family: Decolonization in our organizations
- This session from the Village Workshop Series© will assist you as you move forward into reconciliation. We will deepen our understanding regarding the decolonization of our organizations and learn about how we can increase cultural safety for families who have Indigenous ancestry. From this learning comes an increased understanding of respectful ways of engaging and working collaboratively in order to build more culturally safe systems. The participants will have a cognitive and emotional understanding of traditional First Nations values. This learning echoes the sentiments and goals of the TRC Calls to Action and The United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP).
