CRRF National Symposium: Montreal: May 17-19 2010: Unlearning and Addressing Bias in Society

Quote:

You are cordially invited to attend the Canadian Race Relations Foundation's (CRRF) biannual National Symposium and 2010 Award of Excellence, which will take place on May 17-19 in Montreal.

Unlearning and Addressing Bias in Society

Attended by Canada's foremost experts in anti-racism and anti-discrimination, this three-day symposium offers a unique opportunity for key policymakers, community groups, researchers and activists to engage in a lively discussion on issues which are hot and high on the national agenda:

♦ Canada's Demographic Shift
♦ Policing and Human Rights
♦ International Qualifications
♦ Racial and Social Profiling
♦ The Color of Poverty
♦ Equity in Education

Symposium speakers include experts and practitioners with rich background and extensive experience in the subject matter.

Through the Award of Excellence initiative as an integral part of the symposium, CRRF also recognizes public, private or voluntary organizations whose efforts represent excellence and innovation in combating racism. Please check the symposium PROGRAM for further details on the event. Registration can be made online (special discount rates for NGOs!). 

We also offer a limited number of Display Tables for community organizations to showcase their work and services. The symposium offers a valuable exposure for organizations and a great opportunity to reach out to a large audience.

For more information, please visit our www.crrf-fcrr.ca">website. Also, feel free to forward this invitation to any interested parties.

This sounds like a great conference. Not sure if I can be there. After reading the program, however, I would advise anyone attending to arrive late on the Monday. Jason Kenney (hate hate hate him) is saying a few words. Sadly, those words will not be: "I'm a racist ass and I'm resigning."
