Event description

Description

The Downtown Eastside Neighbourhood House is developing a project called Let’s Speak Up! which aims to reduce the barriers residents face when choosing to be engaged in the governance that impacts their community. Through dialogue, education and the commitment of local agencies we are planning to support the capacity development of already existing and potential inclusive Board composition.

Join us, nonprofit Board members, educators, and community members as we discuss the benefits of diversity and what can be done to include more voices in a time of critical decision-making and flux.

Appetizers and refreshments will be provided

If childcare or transportation are barriers for your participation, please contact matt@dteshouse.ca. Childcare will not be provided on site.
