Black History (Futures) Month: Cultivating Safer Workplaces for Black Employees

Loading Events

Black History (Futures) Month: Cultivating Safer Workplaces for Black Employees is a webinar is being delivered in recognition of Black History Month by Engineers and Geoscientists BC (EGBC).

Black History Month is a time for Canadians to honour and celebrate the diversity, history, and culture of Black people in Canada, and to acknowledge the many everyday contributions of Black communities from across the country.

Since the first person of African descent first arrived, in 1608, on the soil of what we now call Canada, the Black population in this country has grown to over 1.2 million people. This growth has not been without adversity and discrimination in both community and workplace environments.

Recognizing past, on-going, and systemic anti-Black racism embedded into institutions and accepted practices is a key step in building a different type of future – one that is equitable, empowering, and inclusive.

When: Wednesday, February 28, 2024.

Presenter: Shalyma Cambridge, director of Client Solutions and Partner, Inclusivity
