Join BC Housing CEO Shayne Ramsay for a discussion on how the organization is addressing racism, ableism and other forms of systemic discrimination through its new Office of Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (OEDIB).
BC Housing has crucial work already underway, such as asset management MOUs with First Nations and partnerships with a wide range of Indigenous housing organizations and non-profits that serve marginalized and equity-seeking communities. We also know there is much more that can and will be done.
Join the conversation for a thought-provoking discussion on how leaders can be a part of the change, and advance equity, diversity, inclusion and belonging within their organizations.
