All parents and teachers from Humberside Collegiate Institute, Parkdale Collegiate, The Student School, Ursula Franklin Academy and Western Technical-Commercial are welcome! 

This workshop will be on Zoom on Wednesday, April 6, 2022 from 7:00 - 8:30 pm. This workshop will be facilitated by Shauna and Demore Barnes of Create Possibility. https://www.create-possibility.com/

Come prepared to discuss race and diversity through an anti-oppressive lens. This discussion will be held in a virtual brave space of mutual respect and yearning for understanding.

We will be guided by the principles of courageous conversations see here: http://www.nonprofitinclusiveness.org/agreements-courageous-conversations-and-active-learning.
