Topic: On our upcoming call, Ms. Renee Vaugeois will share her learnings over the past year in working with Friendship Centres across the province about child and youth welfare and justice as well as hate crime in her role as the Executive Director of the John Humphrey Centre for Peace and Human Rights and President of the Alberta Hate Crimes Committee. She will also give a brief overview of values and principles of human rights and how they can be used as a tool for positive social change.
This community of practice meets monthly on the second Tuesday of the month. The group meetings are for individuals who are or are working with large populations of Indigenous people on poverty reduction, and are interested in sharing best practice information on programming or engagement strategies for Indigenous populations; would like to co-develop materials or presentations to teach and engage peers across local regions and throughout the national network; and who are interested in working through a collective impact lens.
By joining this unique community of practice you will be able to share your experiences and knowledge in free-flowing and creative ways with other professionals who are working on similar challenges or issues. By engaging in facilitated conversations with your peers, you will uncover new approaches to problems, build your professional skill set, access new ideas and contribute to the transfer of best practices.
