Join us on our new date, Thursday, October 1 at 7 pm ET for an interactive session with inclusion and anti-racism consultant, Destine Lord.
Feedback from alumni indicated that our previously-scheduled time slot made it challenging to attend this important event. To accommodate more alumni, we have changed to a more convenient time.
During this 90-minute dialogue-based session Destine will review the key definitions and racial concepts needed to discuss race. Take part in a modified session, similar to what Ashbury staff participated in during professional development week, so you too can learn to facilitate challenging conversations and lean in to discomfort with openness and humility. Registration in advance is required.
Destine Lord is a consultant, communicator, connector and facilitator working toward the elimination of racism in Canada. For the last 10 years, she has worked across the country, in both the private and public sectors, facilitating workshops and training sessions related to risk management, change management, Indigenous reconciliation and building awareness of Indigenous culture within mainstream organizations. Destine has been to a number of First Nation and Inuit communities as an ally and relationship builder.
She has done anti-racism work with teachers and public servants in both Canada and the UK. She is certified in change management through Prosci Solutions and has an honors degree in Mass Communication from Carleton University and a master’s degree in Journalism from Bond University. She is a news junkie and very interested in how the media can shape our perceptions about the world and people around us.
