Session 5:  Psychological Safety in the Workplace 101



Psychological safety has become a buzzword in justice, equity, diversity and inclusion work but what does it really mean? What implications does it have for your organization and the health and safety of your team? This session will explore what psychological safety is and how it shows up in your workplace. This 2-part series will focus on:

  • What does psychological safety mean?
  • What are tools to assess and build safety within your organization?
  • Organizational tools for dealing with the psychological, JEDI, Burnout and Mental health demands of the sector

Part of a five-session series

The COVID-19 pandemic and other complexities have changed the context and needs for the social sector.

Back in March 2021, the Community Sector Council of Nova Scotia (CSCNS) partnered with Inspiring Communities (IC) to launch a survey to gather data and information on the needs of the sector. Together, we recognized the need to offer capacity building opportunities based on the current and future context. We also understand that community connection and support are essential, especially during times of crisis; we aim to facilitate such connection while offering meaningful, shared learning opportunities and resources that align with evolving sector needs.

The results from the survey helped identify the sector needs and inform the five capacity building sessions. We invite you to join us for capacity building workshops that will further skill, knowledge and build opportunities for people and organizations to create positive impact across Nova Scotia.

The 2-part capacity building sessions will have an emphasis on building peer-to-peer relationships (cohort learning) and collaborative learning while offering tools and resources to help you implement the learning within your organization or community.
