To celebrate Saskatchewan Multicultural Week, all November we are asking Saskatchewan, “Who’s Your Multicultural Superhero?” Share yours on social media using #MulticulturalSuperhero and tell us why!
This campaign allows the people of Saskatchewan to share successful examples of leaders – Multicultural Superheroes – who inspire others through their values, beliefs and actions.
Multicultural Superheroes inspire everyone to create welcoming and inclusive communities!
They act as a metaphor for how all types of business can learn to better engage their customers and the public. They help students and teachers see possibilities to celebrate cultural diversity, and identify and challenge discrimination. Multicultural Superheroes show community organizations how to inspire others to engage in their cause. All levels of Government can learn why multiculturalism matters and how it can better implement the Saskatchewan Multiculturalism Act.
