L’Inspecteur (Programme en français)$149.99
Ce programme agréée par le Barreau de l’Ontario (1 heure de professionalisme qui remplit l’exigence visant à avancer l’égalité et l’inclusion dans les professions juridiques) porte sur les valeurs et les meilleures pratiques pour la diversité et l’inclusion des minorités de langue officielle au Canada. Vous visionnerez d’abord le court métrage documentaire L’Inspecteur à titre d’étude de cas tiré de la série Au nom de tous les canadiens de Hot Docs. Bien avant que les droits en matière d’éducation des minorités linguistiques ne soient établis, les difficultés d’enseigner le français dans les écoles publiques du Manitoba nous sont racontées à travers l’histoire des inspecteurs scolaires des années 1930 et 1940.
This 1.5 hour PRO BONO edutainment program on equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) features as a case study the Hot Docs original short documentary entitled “Lessons Injustice” followed by a discussion about anti-racism measures and cultural competency in the professional workplace featuring a cross-disciplinary panel of lawyers, medical and health care professionals, and business professionals. This engaging program has been developed for all professionals interested in better understanding the challenges faced by racialized individuals in Canada and improve their intercultural competencies to address issues of systemic racism in the professional workplace.
This accredited program (1 hour EDI professionalism by the Law Society of Ontario) focuses on the importance of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Human rights, mutual respect, and dialogue to foster equality, diversity and inclusion and counter the rise of populism and racism in our Canadian society. The program features “Notwithstanding”, a Hot Docs short film from the series “In the Name of all Canadians”. Adopting a creative approach to documentary filmmaking, the film depicts a doomsday scenario when Section 33, the notwithstanding clause, weaponizes the Charter against itself.
