Black History Month

EDI, Racism and Society in Today’s Context

During Black History Month, we’re honoured to once again welcome César Ndéma-Moussa, who’ll lead a workshop on equity, diversity and inclusivity (EDI) and racism in contemporary society. César Ndéma-Moussa will tackle the topic in depth, before opening a discussion with members of the audience. He’ll address various aspects of this crucial topic for 30 minutes, and then will take questions for an hour, to further explore the issues that matter to you. We encourage you to participate to get the most out of this opportunity for learning and dialogue.
