Cultural Awareness Trainer: Leah Horzempa, J.D. is Métis from near Penetanguishene, Ontario. She was raised in a rural area, closely with her Metis Grandmother and her Irish Poppa. She is the founder and principal researcher, educator, facilitator, and reconciliation consultant at Sister Circle Consulting, as well as a lawyer trained at Osgoode Hall Law School. Leah provides education and training, group facilitation, consultation on reconciliation strategies, and implementation support to a variety of clients.

More Information: Leah tailors her approach to cultural training to her client’s specific domain of work, existing knowledge, and reconciliation needs. All her training and education sessions are based on contemporary Indigenous research in combination with Leah’s existing knowledges and experiences as an Indigenous woman, to highlight and share relevant histories and the diverse, contemporary realities and perspectives of First Peoples. Leah brings knowledge across many domains to her education and training sessions, including:

  • Indigenous knowledge systems and governance,

  • Indigenous research and evaluation methods,

  • Natural and Indigenous customary legal systems,

  • Community governance and economic development,

  • Restorative justice,

  • Gender issues and feminism,

  • Diversity and inclusion in the workplace,

  • Relationship building across cultures, and

  • Reconciliation to achieve nation-to-nation relationships.

Leah uses diverse modalities in her teaching and facilitation, including circle work, graphic facilitation, design-thinking, and most importantly, humour!
