Guests and Panelists for Skills for Change's Spotlight Series

The panelists for Skills for Change’s Spotlight Series on May 25th, 2021

On May 25th 2020, the world witnessed a global uproar against racism, against systematic racial inequities and racial injustice. Since then, we started having more meaningful conversations and actions about race and combatting Anti-Black Racism. Different initiatives have been developed and efforts undertaken to make and take the long overdue changes to address systematic racism. But has this made any real impact, what are the key achievements made to address Anti-Black Racism in Canada since the murder of George Floyd and the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement?

Join us on May 25th 2021 at 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on a year’s journey of reflection in the aftermath of the global outcry on Anti-Black Racism. The session will examine the progress made and what more can be done to address Anti-Black Racism. The discussions will explore ways that leaders, innovators and changemakers across the public, private, and social sectors can up their support for Anti-Black Racism efforts and build an inclusive recovery in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On this occasion, we are honoured to launch Skills for Change’s Black Leadership Institute on Social Action for Change that will lead efforts to address Anti-Black Racism and systemic inequalities affecting Black Communities. This launch will present an opportunity to dig further into what we can all do to fight racism in Canada.

Mark your calendars for these enriching discussions to advance the much-needed work to combat Anti-Black Racism and push forward the conversation and reforms to break the systemic inequalities that hinder Black communities.
