Event description

Description

Canadians for a Civil Society, in partnership with MacEwan University, NAIT, and the Indo Canadian Women’s Association invite you to a symposium on “Building Empathy and Conquering Apathy” that will bring together educators, policy makers, human-rights advocates, academics, non-profit and front-line service workers. We will collaborate to prevent human-rights violations in Canada through exploring promising approaches such as empathy-based human-rights education.

Our goal is to initiate reconciliation, raise awareness and examine solutions to discrimination, bullying, and harassments at the intersection of gender, race, sexual orientation, and poverty with two days of engagements .

We will stress the importance of empathy-based human-rights education and encourage individuals to see themselves as stakeholders in leading change.

The symposium “Building Empathy, Conquering Apathy” is the second event in a three-year plan to raise awareness of the intersections between human-rights violations, such as gender-based violence, discrimination, harassment, and bullying and the intersections of gender-identity, race, sexual orientation, and poverty.
