Cross-Pollinate AI for Culture Transformation

Pollinate’s purpose is to bring people together to get important things done. Culture change requires patience and careful cross-pollination of people throughout an organization, so all perspectives can be heard and a strong internal network is built.

The Children’s Aid Society of the Districts of Sudbury and Manitoulin is an organization that values children, and is respectful and sensitive to the diverse needs of the community they operate in. The organization is committed to: 

  • ensuring the safety and well-being of children
  • delivering services to children which are sensitive to culture, language, and religion
  • providing a safe, permanent, stable, loving environment free from abuse, neglect, and exploitation
  • advocating for the necessary resources to meet children’s needs
  • achieving this mission in collaboration with community partners

The Challenge

The Children’s Aid Society of the Districts of Sudbury and Manitoulin recently shifted their mandate to empowering community agencies operating within their region, to direct their own unique needs for care. 

Pollinate partnered with CASDSM, their anti-oppression consultants and training organization to create and cross-pollinate these new values and leadership behaviours throughout the organization.
