Equity Panel & Dinner
The Systems Change Team at Collingwood Neighbourhood House (CNH) invites you to join a live, in person, “Equity in Practice” Panel in conjunction with Collingwood Days 2022. The panel will be moderated by Maria dela Cruz, with openting by Tess Emnet Mengesha and panel guests Lydia Luk, Leila Trickey and Jaz Whitford.
This in-person dialogue will take place on Thursday, July 21, 2022, from 6-8pm PST at the CNH Main House, 5288 Joyce Street in Renfrew Collingwood, on the unceded homelands and territories of the Səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) First Nations. Dinner will be provided.
Systems Change brings communities together by taking action to solve the root causes of complex social problems. This means challenging ideas, beliefs, and behaviours of individuals, communities, organizations, and institutions. Through Systems Change, neighbours have the power to advocate and lead justice in the communities and places they care about and live in.
Equity-driven Systems Change calls for fair and just processes that are participatory, data-driven and produce measurable results over time which promote shifts in community trends, perspectives, policies and mental models to build healthy and resilient communities.
Participants will be limited to 25. Dinner will be provided.
