As the Central Okanagan is quickly diversifying, it is essential that it continues to grow and strive towards an inclusive community. These workshops are being offered to foster equitable and inclusive educational opportunities within the Central Okanagan community. Through these workshops, we aim to cultivate broader community awareness, as we encourage organizations to develop inclusive spaces and embrace new equitable practices.

Join us for a 2-part workshop that introduces and explores the topics of justice; equity; diversity; and inclusion (JEDI).

The first workshop will present a historical and current community scan of the region, introduce the ideas and importance of JEDI work, and establish common language and concepts such as privilege, marginalization, and intersectionality. The second session provided one week later will offer attendees a deeper dive on how concepts introduced in the first workshop impact their organizations and communities.

This workshop will support attendees to make and implement plans to incorporate JEDI principles into their workplaces, and community as a whole. This will be done through experiential learning, including guidance on equitable hiring practices, recruitment and retention strategies, and accountability.

These workshops are open to individuals and organizations – non-profit; government; health; education; cultural; and, diverse community groups, as well as the community-at-large. All attendees should attend both workshops, as they are closely linked.

This pilot workshop is offered free of charge thanks to funding provided by:
The City of Kelowna, the Province of British Columbia and the Government of Canada
