Learning and building your awareness will help you to develop skills, tools, and appropriate supportive responses to difficult questions, scenarios, and highly activated reactions. This will prevent complaints and harm. These cases are complex and require specialized services to prevent unintended harm which is often caused by a lack of training and awareness. As a member of the CIWPB Team, Tryna can assist leaders, employees who are harmed, witnesses who are struggling, or those accused and struggling to come to terms with the allegations or investigation outcomes. Including those who are falsely accused.

Shannon Lust

PhD Student

Tansi, Waspiski paskwaw mostos iskwew nitisiyihkason – my given name is Shannon Lust, and my Cree name is White Buffalo Woman. I am originally from treaty 8 territory and now reside in Treaty 6 near Edmonton, Alberta. My vast experience working within the mental health and education sectors, specifically within Indigenous communities, has afforded me many learning and growth opportunities. I have been taught by elders, knowledge keepers and many other indigenous peoples. Within the western Education system, I am taught in the field of counselling psychology and Indigenous people education. I am led to this work to ensure that the voices of victims are heard and that organizations are given the skills and opportunities to grow. At times, experiences within workplaces that lead individuals to being silenced, need to be better understood and stopped at the root. Finding and giving space to unheard voices, giving space for organizations to grow and bringing growth to all involved, is why I am drawn to this work with the Canadian Institute of Workplace Bullying Resources Inc.

Originally from the Southern region of the province of Quebec, (Sherbrooke) I completed my post-secondary studies – College, DEC Pure and Applied Science, College, DEC Pre-Medical, University, B.Sc. in Engineering from New Brunswick. Currently working in completing my post-Grad studies.

With over 40 years of work experience in the field of water, Industrial water treatment, water reuse and Subject Matter Expert, (SEM) I was fortunate to work alongside people from around the world.

Having experienced Workplace Harassment in my own profession, I have learned a great deal about the impacts and resources needed for psychological safety. As an English and French speaking certified trainer with CIWBR, I offer our training sessions in French.

Originaire de la région de Sherbrooke, dans le Cantons de l’Est, j’ai complété mes études collégiales en: DEC Science Pure et Appliquée et DEC Science Santé, pour par la suite compléter mon B.Sc. en ingénierie, en anglais au Nouveau Brunswick.

Avec plus de 40 ans d’expériences dans les domaines des eaux, traitement industrielle des eaux usées et reconnu comme spécialiste générale dans ce dicipline (SME), j’ai eu l’opportunité de travailler au niveau internationale, et ce avec des gens de toutes les régions du monde.  

Durant ces années, plusieurs situations bouleversantes au travail, furent souvent des causes de conflits.

Le support et les connaissances obtenues par l’organisme CIWBR furent des outils nécessaires pour m’aider a surmonter ces conflits, a faire face et surmonter mes stress quotidiens et finalement prospérer dans ma vie.

Comme représentent bilingue pour le groupe  CIWBR, mes présentions et discussion sont principalement offert en français.
