During this session an activity is done which allows participant to ask any question regarding Indigenous peoples / issues in complete anonymity. All questions are collected and answered by myself and consultants after the session. All answers are returned to your department for distribution back to participants. I have administered this exercise to almost 1000 participants during my past workshops. The information collected provides clear, honest insight of your staffs understanding regarding Indigenous peoples and issues.
