A Matter of Respect Initiative
To create a shared understanding with our Tribal partners and clients, Woodstone has established a proprietary initiative call “A Matter of Respect.”
This quarterly learning event creates a base of knowledge for Woodstone employees and promotes a work culture that can better understand the perspectives of our Native American clientele.
- Tribal history
- Community outreach
- Environmental racism
- Tribal economic development
- Tribal housing
- Cultural identity
- TERO (Tribal Employment Rights Ordinance or Office)
Through this initiative, we strive to earn the honor of acceptance from our Tribal partners by participating in cultural traditions and activities such as meal sharing, powwows, ground blessings, health fairs, job fairs, and other gatherings. By being physically present, side-by-side with Tribal leaders and members, we learn to listen, understand, participate, and help.
