Encouraging Diversity in Your Community: Learnings from the ACE 'Diversity Friendly' Communities
Speakers: Barb Pedersen, Janet Naclia
This session shares the learnings of the ACE Diversity Friendly Communities (DFC) initiative. Its goal: to increase community capacity, using recreation, parks, arts, culture, and heritage as a catalyst to foster equality, reduce discrimination and racism, and remove organizational barriers that exclude some Albertans. Hear stories from four ACE DFC and participate and explore the community`s potential for becoming more diversity friendly.
