Event description

Description

This event aims to provide the public with tangible tools to tackle ableism, ageism, heterosexism, racism and sexism through our language. During the event, you will learn to adopt an inclusive vocabulary and promote others to accept, embrace and celebrate our differences. Canadian Cultural Mosaic Foundation will also be launching their new resource guide and online app to tackle these -isms.

Panel members from diverse backgrounds and specialties will discuss their own experiences and tactics in tackling ableism, ageism, heterosexism, racism and sexism through language.
