In this webinar, Harmony Johnson will reflect on the In Plain Sight Report: Addressing Indigenous-specific Racism and Discrimination in B.C. Health Care nearly two years since its release. She will explore the key meta-findings from the report and consider the implications for human beings and leaders working in the health sector. Although the In Plain Sight Report focuses on the B.C. health care system, the lessons shared are relevant and applicable for all leaders working in Canada. 

Harmony is of Tla’amin First Nation (Coast Salish) ancestry and was raised in Tla’amin territory where most of her family resides. Harmony also operates a consulting business providing strategy and advisory services in Indigenous health, governance, and human rights, as well as teaches on these same matters. She has served in senior roles with the In Plain Sight review in BC health care, and with the First Nations Health Authority, First Nations Summit, and First Nations Forestry Council. She is the co-author of a number of publications, including print and digital books about her grandmother’s life history and Tla’amin teachings.
