The Coalition on Richer Diversity (CORD) is formally inviting members of the community to attend our Fall 2015 Diversity Event on the topic of Diversity During Economic Downturns. The event will take place on October 8th at The Lantern. Also invited are newcomers to NL and any members of the public who are passionate about diversity issues.
As a stakeholder in this issue, you are invited to share your knowledge and engage in conversation as we explore how newcomers are affected by economic downturns. It will also be an opportunity to network with others – both those in refugee and immigrant services and give employers an opportunity to discuss diversity within the workplace.
This event will take the shape of group discussions on two main topics:
1) How do newcomers experience economic downturns differently than Canadian-born individuals?
2) How do individuals from diverse backgrounds experience economic downturns differently from the general public?
CORD will write up a detailed report on the overall findings of this event. The report will be a public record of issues raised and proposed solutions. However, we encourage you to be the facilitators of this discussion.
Please pre-register by TUESDAY, OCTOBER 6TH using this online form.
This session is part of the on-going Coalition on Richer Diversity work supported by the Refugee and Immigrant Advisory Council.
