The Halton District School Board (HDSB) is hosting a panel series to raise awareness on identity, inclusion and human rights.

The next session, which is called Self-Determination and Anti-Colonial Practices: Indigenous Rights, Education and Food Sovereignty, will feature four panel speakers and will be held virtually on Tuesday, Apr. 26 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

“Each session in the series will explore how issues of identity and inclusion intersect with education,” said Curtis Ennis, Director of Education for the Halton District School Board.

“This provides an opportunity to create awareness of multiple perspectives of insight and analysis on how individual identities can be reflected and engaged in the broader HDSB community. This panel series aligns with the Board’s commitment to raise awareness of diverse community perspectives and the need to broaden resources to support inclusion and student achievement, as reflected in the HDSB’s Multi-Year Plan 2020-2024 and the Human Rights Equity Action & Accountability Plan – The Way Forward.”

Those who are interested in attending the event may submit a question to the panel before or during the discussion here.

Pre-registration is not required.
