Event description

Description

Join this community conversation to examine how the voices of vulnerable and marginalized people - the lived experience voices - can be effectively incorporated into planning and decision-making in government and social services delivery beyond tokenism.

Guest Speakers: Kate Mechan, Canada Without Poverty/Yukon Anti-Poverty Coalition

Kerry Nolan, Lived Experience participant, Safe at Home, Yukon, Whitehorse

Panelists: Pamela Beebe, University of Calgary

Hillary Chapple, Community Leader

Glenn Crowchief, Disability Action Hall

Brad Robertson, Disability Action Hall

Lived experience speakers from diverse contexts will draw on their personal and professional lives to discuss the bottlenecks of seeking help from a position of disadvantage, and how practitioners in government and the social services sector can not only collectively acknowledge the value of lived-experience voices, but meaningfully integrate these perspectives into planning, funding, evaluation and service delivery.

Individuals with a lived-experience of poverty and related issues are especailly encouraged to attend.

Lunch will be provided.
