IDEAS: Inclusion, Diversity, Equity and Anti-Racism Summit

Thursday, November 25, 2021

Johnson Geo Centre

Admission: Free (limited tickets)

After a very successful online summit last year, we are happy to be back in-person this year. For those who can’t make it in person we will continue to live- stream the event! This Summit provides a forum to showcase the positive contributions and impact of underrepresented groups, while facilitating a larger conversation about the value of inclusion and integration of diverse groups in the province. Through the Summit, attendees will receive tools they can use to implement IDEA in their workplace and community. Please join us for a day of sharing, learning, and discussion!
