About this course

In part 2 of our webinar series on "Cultural Initiatives in Policing," we shift gears from a discussion of the Ottawa Police Service's pivotal “pilot project,” to take a look at the impactful partnership between the Calgary Police Service (CPS) and the University of Calgary's Shift Research Team and their work in respect of the CPS’s culture project.

The Shift Research Team, located at the University of Calgary, has been working closely with the Calgary Police Service since 2020. In that time, they have undertaken a number of policy and culture change projects related to addressing sexual harassment, enhancing gender equity, and increasing psychological safety, belonging, and inclusion within the Calgary Police Service. One of their approaches, supported by a Public Health Agency of Canada grant totalling $1.1 million, includes implementing and evaluating a ‘norms and nudges’ approach. The approach is based on research that shows that social norms are a powerful driver of behaviour and focuses on ways that members can enhance workplace culture through subtle behaviours that ripple through teams and across units and districts, signalling a different set of social and professional expectations. This webinar will highlight the partnership goals along with the principles behind the design of the approach and lessons learned to date.

Elizabeth Dozois is the Project Lead for The Art of the Nudge, a partnership between Shift/UCalgary and the Calgary Police Service, designed to enhance psychological safety, equity, inclusion, and belonging within the Service.

Elizabeth led the collaborative design of the approach and authored an implementation guide for practitioners called Changing Contexts: A Framework for Engaging Male-Oriented Settings in Gender Equity and Violence Prevention. In her capacity as a consultant, Elizabeth has been providing strategic support, research, curriculum design, and facilitation to organizations in the non-profit and public sectors for over twenty years.

Wells created the first research hub in Canada to focus solely on stopping domestic and sexual violence before it starts — Shift: The Project to End Domestic Violence (www.preventdomesticviolence.ca). Shift’s focus is on designing and testing new behavioural approaches to prevent gender-based violence by advancing equity and inclusion and integrating evidence into policy and practice. She has worked with hundreds of community-based organizations and all orders of government to transform our systems of oppression and reimagine new possibilities through an equity-lens. Since the appointment to the Chair position in 2010, Lana has held over $14 million in research funding, grants, and awards.

One of their approaches, supported by a Public Health Agency of Canada grant totalling $1.1 million, includes implementing and evaluating a ‘norms and nudges’ approach. The approach is based on research that shows that social norms are a powerful driver of behaviour and focuses on ways that members can enhance workplace culture through subtle behaviours that ripple through teams and across units and districts, signalling a different set of social and professional expectations. This webinar will highlight the partnership goals along with the principles behind the design of the approach and lessons learned to date.

About this course

In part 2 of our webinar series on "Cultural Initiatives in Policing," we shift gears from a discussion of the Ottawa Police Service's pivotal “pilot project,” to take a look at the impactful partnership between the Calgary Police Service (CPS) and the University of Calgary's Shift Research Team and their work in respect of the CPS’s culture project.

The Shift Research Team, located at the University of Calgary, has been working closely with the Calgary Police Service since 2020. In that time, they have undertaken a number of policy and culture change projects related to addressing sexual harassment, enhancing gender equity, and increasing psychological safety, belonging, and inclusion within the Calgary Police Service. One of their approaches, supported by a Public Health Agency of Canada grant totalling $1.1 million, includes implementing and evaluating a ‘norms and nudges’ approach. The approach is based on research that shows that social norms are a powerful driver of behaviour and focuses on ways that members can enhance workplace culture through subtle behaviours that ripple through teams and across units and districts, signalling a different set of social and professional expectations.
