After attending many advisory board meetings over the past year or two for the Welcoming and Inclusive Communities and Workplaces Program with the Richmond Multicultural Concerns Society (RMCS), RMCS finally launched their Diversity Dialogue Conference at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Richmond BC last Friday the 19th. I was unable to stay for the entire event, but by 9am there was a lineup of people waiting to register for the Diversity Dialogue Conference. The Diversity Dialogue Conference included film screening from Out In Schools Youth, an ethnic food fair and information booths, HR workshops for the business community, and a plethora of other activities. In the second photo below, you can also spot local Richmond Centre MLA, Rob Howard.
Keeping along on the topic of diversity, the Developmental Disabilities Association was nominated for the DIVERSEcity Awards and will be recognized as a finalist at the 15th Annual Cultural DIVERSEcity Award Gala on Tuesday 13th of April, 2010. We’ve got out fingers crossed that we’l’l be leaving the gala with the DIVERSEcity Award!
