Event description

Description

Calling in executive directors, leadership teams and changemakers in the non-profit sector.

The cultural landscape of BC is a beautiful tapestry of traditions, wisdom and expression, but are nonprofit organizations truly aware of their potential to engage and serve communities inclusive of race, culture and identity? How do nonprofits include or exclude persons of varying identities? How can we work within our sector to become social justice leaders? And lastly, how can we move from “diversity” to authentic inclusion?

In this 2.5-hour session, we will introduce and discuss the concepts of race and racism, diversity vs decolonization, equity, inclusion, identity, intersectionality and how they relate to non-profit systems of governance.

Through activities and conversation, participants will be invited to explore their own cultural identities, deconstruct their cultural biases and critically examine systemic barriers to gain a deeper understanding of issues faced by people of underrepresented identities, particularly racialized and gendered populations, while exploring steps forward.

Vegan, gluten-free pizza and non-alcoholic beverages will be provided.

This workshop will take place on the unceded ancestral territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples.
