How to Participate
Join us on Tuesday, February 4, 2020 (9:30 AM – 4:00 PM) at the Helliwell Centre, Osgoode Hall Law School for Inclusion Day, an event that will focus on the theme of belonging and exploring ways we can promote a greater sense of belonging at York. Registration is first come, first serve, so don’t wait to participate!
What is Inclusion Day?
Inclusion Day 2020 will focus on belonging, which is a feeling we understand but often struggle to achieve in comprehensive ways. So then, what does it mean to belong? How can we promote a greater sense of belonging at York?
Through a human rights lens, belonging can be seen as the nexus of equity, diversity and inclusion. It’s the space where seats are available at the table, voices are meaningfully heard, and needs are met.
