About the Facilitator
Crystal Kosa

Crystal Kosa, National Manager, Human Resources Strategies with the Aboriginal Human Resource Development Council of Canada, is a widely respected professional in the field of Aboriginal human resources. Crystal brings a wealth of experience and a unique understanding of the issues in Aboriginal hiring, retention, and promotion to the workshop.

Ms. Kosa’s distinctive strength in shaping new collaborative initiatives has made her the prime figure in the development of two of the council’s flagship initiatives; the Inclusion Network – a national online Aboriginal job board connecting employers and Aboriginal job seekers, and the Mastering Aboriginal Inclusion series, a catalyst that will create a new culture of Aboriginal inclusion in the workplace.

Crystal has spent numerous years speaking at events and conferences across Canada, which promote the benefits of hiring Aboriginal people and show to companies how to identify and eliminate barriers in the workplace through shared recruitment and retention strategies.

There were a lot of good ideas that I can use to support and promote Aboriginal recruiting and retention.
– Donna Knebush, City of Edmonton

I appreciated the variety of presentation formats and presenters: facilitator led, lecture and group work.
– Susan Yantz, Excalibur

The workshop was very informative. The networking and sharing of best practices was most useful. It’s nice to now many companies are facing the same issues and hearing of the different ideas to address them.
– Stacy Lefebvre, DeBeers Canada

I learned a lot about barriers and solutions, the importance of interview and pre-interview process.
