About this Event

At SETSI it is our goal to ensure the momentum does not wane.

We ask you as a community leader to engage in the important work we are facilitating by becoming patrons of our first ever, fee-for-service capacity building session. Your participation and contribution will aid our emerging organization in our work.

· This capacity building session will gather leaders and edify participants with an understanding of their roles, responsibilities and key strategies for advancing racial equity, diversity and inclusion.

· The training aims to cultivate an understanding of our collective responsibility to prevent racial discrimination & exclusionary models in our ecosystems as well as addressing racial microaggressions.

· The key themes of the session will be anti-black racism, tools for organizational change & deconstructing institutional racism.

Social Economy Through Social Inclusion (SETSI), as an Investment Readiness Program (IRP) partner, has worked diligently to raise awareness of the IRP as well as social finance amongst African Canadian communities. As an ally, they have effectively provided opportunities and contributed extensively to many organizations within the ecosystems. Over the course of 2020, they convened 57 webinars and training sessions that have engaged 3,183 social purpose organization leaders and constituents from across Canada. They have also developed and maintained a network table, participated in multiple network planning tables, as well as supported many ecosystem mobilization initiatives.

As an organization, they are laying the groundwork for a more inclusive, diverse, equitable and accessible ecosystem. It is clear that diversifying the face of the social finance, social economy, community economic development and co-operative movements across Canada is imperative for collective progress. For greater context please review From the Margins.

Since they embarked on this ambitious journey of adding to the “faces” of the aforementioned sectors leadership, they have cultivated remarkable relationships and on-boarded allies. The following link articulates some of their partners in this work and collective key actions, Joint Statement.

Building on the work of the joint statement with notable leaders, SETSI’s goals are clear:

  • Meaningful engagement of BIPOC
  • Establishing and deploying anti-racist practices, especially addressing anti-black racism
  • Diversifying board governance
  • Deepening the conversation on equity
  • Enhancing Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Access (IDEA) practices
  • Mandating diversity and inclusion
  • Implementation of race-conscious approaches to counter persistent racial inequities
  • Establish new social contracts that enable shared prosperity.

In the midst of the covid-19 pandemic, extreme inequality has been apparent. The pandemic has also revealed our interconnectedness: we are only as safe as the least protected among us. In a diversifying country, dismantling structural racism and ensuring economic security for all is not just prudent - it is the right thing to do.

We need sustained and race-conscious policies and investments to stabilize people and organizations during this crisis and to cultivate a more equitable future. As organizations and institutions develop statements and commitments to anti racist practices across the country, authentic action is required.

This moment of systems upheaval has opened the eyes of many Canadians to issues of inequity that are not new, but are being held under a new microscope. As government agencies, businesses, investors, and non-profits alike continue to reckon with next steps, it is crucial we begin adapting engagement strategies, coalesce networks and develop social justice platforms.
