2019 OACP Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Symposium

2019 OACP Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Symposium

What Happens In Here, Matters Out There..

This year's symposium focuses on how the internal health of police organizations impacts their capacity to provide effective service to the communities they serve. We know that work-related challenges to member mental health (for example, PTSD, depression, anxiety and substance abuse) and their sense of belonging (which can be shaped by such things as social alienation, bullying and workplace violence) can have a significant effect not only on individual members, but also on the quality of service they provide to the public. Also important to internal health and resilience is training related to cultural awareness, empathy and understanding, which is crucial to developing officers' capacity to relate to and engage with members of their respective communities. The symposium will provide an opportunity to hear from a range of experts on these critical issues, with interactive sessions that will provide a space for attendees to share ideas on prevention, recognition, and responses to systemic, group and individual challenges to the mental and emotional health of service members.
