This year, CPCO Conference will be offering several Breakout Sessions. Seasoned professionals will lead each session as they share personal and professional experiences on the following topics:
Navigating the 21st century world of media and politics
Speakers: Carole Allen, Peter Landry, David Sieger
Details: This session will help to reflect on the current political and media environment in Ontario, particularly around protecting and supporting Catholic education. You will learn strategies that will build and reinforce support for Catholic schools, share in the expertise offered by FACE, and take away critical and practical information to support servant leadership as a Catholic Principal or Vice-Principal.
Servant leadership and personal wellness
Speaker: Dr. Greg Wells
Details: As Catholic school leaders we create conditions that support the achievement and well-being of our students, as well as everyone in our community. But how do we structure our work in order to be mindful of our own well-being and success? Dr. Greg Wells will guide us through a process that helps restore, renew and re-energize our influence as Catholic Principals and Vice-Principals.
The Indigenous narrative and leadership
Presenter: The Ontario Federation of Indigenous Friendship Centres (OFIFC)
Details: This workshop will assist you in acquiring historical and cultural information, in order to enhance the quality of consultation and engagement with Indigenous people, organizations and communities. Throughout the session, participants will have the opportunity to build a shared understanding of historic trauma, contemporary priorities, wholistic healing, and the importance of using a trauma-informed lens to infuse cultural competencies throughout organizational practices.
These sessions are a great opportunity to learn more about different facets of the education sector and give conference attendees the opportunity to network with peers.
