Report highlights areas in need of improvement within RDCO

A new report has pinpointed several areas where the Regional District of Central Okanagan (RDCO) can improve its recruitment, retention, and equity efforts. The report authors noted that the RDCO needs to implement more inclusive hiring processes, introduce more cultural competency training for existing staff, and foster an environment that respects Indigenous knowledge and perspectives. The report also mentioned the importance of establishing and growing relationships between RDCO and Westbank First Nation (WFN) and incorporating Syilx protocols, language, and cultural practices into its operations.
