How can we embed Accessibility in our EDI (Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion) work so our anti-oppression efforts foster belonging in our diverse workforce and reflect the values of intersectionality and disability justice? How do we do this work without creating increased stress and confusion among staff and board members? While the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) is our benchmark for change, it won’t need to be fully implemented until 2025. We can start now by shifting our organizational culture to ensure sustainable change. Start by recognizing the places we get “stuck.” Organizations and non-profit agencies can and should apply access and inclusion principles to programming, board initiatives, and the general organizational culture. This will foster a commitment that goes beyond compliance and the checking off of boxes. To help us get “unstuck,” Fran Odette and Sree Nallamothu present five good ideas from their experience at the Toronto Neighbourhood Centres. Discover how you and your non-profit organizations can respond to the need for an accessible workplace with integrity and accountability.

Speakers: Fran Odette and Sree Nallamothu

The Newcomers (2022) documentary chronicles the lives of five immigrants facing isolation in small-town Saskatchewan as some of them struggle to find acceptance in their new homes.

The film screening and discussion will take place in the RPL Film Theatre. For those who are unable to attend in person, view the panel discussion online via Zoom.

Organizations need to engage the communities in which they work. This workshop will equip participants with skills and practical ways to engage the public.

We will cover principles of engagement with a focus on equity for diverse community members and offer insight from the Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan (MCoS) research on promising practices for intercultural relations. This framework is built on five areas: relevance and impact, diverse engagement and dialogue, youth engagement, integration and equity, and relationship building. It provides opportunities for application for participating organizations.

Facilitated by Michelle Hassler, Executive Director of the Prince Albert Multicultural Council and Yordanos Tesfamariam, Education Manager and trained facilitator at MCoS.
