About Us

Seventh Generation Diversity & Consulting offers Indigenous cultural diversity training and consulting for businesses, schools, and organizations that focus on the diversity and uniqueness of First Nation, Inuit and Metis communities throughout Canada. We also offer consulting for companies and government bodies involved in the legal and constitutional duty to consult and accommodate, which aims to create community-focused consultation protocols and practices.

 

Lead by the complex history and legal landscape that surrounds Indigenous culture, identity and reality in Canada, Seventh Generation Diversity & Consulting provides services that help individuals and organizations achieve an understanding of Indigeneity in Canada while developing tools to create a more diverse, Indigenous-first workplace. Our services include one-on-one consulting, cultural competency sessions and training, and multi-day diversity training programs, all of which are tailored to the needs of your organization. 

Seventh Generation Diversity & Consulting is located in Toronto, Ontario and is founded and run by Veronica Guido, a mixed Indigenous lawyer and advocate. Veronica has a BA in Political Science from York University, a law degree (JD) and Certificate in Aboriginal law from the University of Toronto Faculty of Law, and a Master's of Law (LLM) from Osgoode Hall where she researched Anishinaabe law and the duty to consult and accommodate. 

 

She has been writing about Aboriginal and Indigenous laws and histories, and running sessions on Indigenous diversity and cultural competency since 2017.

TESTIMONIALS

"Veronica put on multiple cultural competency sessions for the Faculty of Nursing. Each one was insightful, engaging, and helped future nurses understand the histories of our future patients."

Victoria, Indigenous Student Rep., McMaster University

"Veronica ran a virtual session for our team on National Truth and Reconciliation Day that was not only very informative and eye-opening, but also actionable, which is something that was really important for our team to take away from this discussion. She was an absolute pleasure to work with, and we hope to have her back for more learning opportunities in the future. I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to explore and learn more about Indigenous Rights."
