LUNCH & LEARN
Every Wednesday @12PM (EST)
Welcome to the Canadian Congress Midweek Lunch & Learn where we empower you and your staff and management teams with tips, tools, techniques and training to facilitate the transformation of your organization, community, corporation and academic institutions.
The Canadian Congress is a national organization with access to over 250 academic & experiential experts, researchers, and facilitators in Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) that offer an end-to-end strategic framework for organizations, institutions, and the government to eliminate systemic racism from their brand, culture, systems, policies & management.
To enable our clients to foster a cohesive, inclusive and progressive corporate culture, we facilitate customized training programs, audit policies & processes from a critical EDI lens, engage their staff and coach their executives to attract, retain and maximize inclusive diversity & workplace equity.
While we organize some of the largest and most impactful diversity events in Canada, empowering over 10,000 people each year to stand up for social justice, we also help organizations to develop & implement short & long-term EDI strategies & initiatives, a training curriculum, content for Learning Management Systems (LMS), and a 3-to-5-year strategic framework and roadmap to facilitate the transformation of their corporate culture.
At the Canadian Congress, we exist to be a voice that will linger for generations, advocating for love, kindness, unity and the human rights and civil liberties of Canadians, while empowering people, corporations, institutions, communities, and the government to foster inclusive diversity & workplace equity.
Nous existons pour être une voix qui perdurera pendant des générations, défendant l'amour, la gentillesse, l'unité et les droits de la personne et les libertés civiles des Canadiens, tout en habilitant les personnes, les entreprises, les institutions, les communautés et le gouvernement.Register Now!
