Archived April 23, 2018 Asian Heritage Month Kick-Off Diversity and inclusion are buzz words these days, but what are the drivers of change that have the largest effects? The Asian Heritage Foundation (Southern Alberta), in partnership with the Federation of Asian Canadian Lawyers – Western Chapter and Action Chinese Canadians Together Foundation, would like to invite you to our Asian Heritage Month Kick-off Luncheon. This event will host a speaker’s panel of industry leaders highlighting important systemic changes that have helped to move the inclusion needle forward, including Bill C-25, an institutional measure designed to increase diversity among corporate boards and executive ranks.

In May 2002, The Government of Canada signed an official declaration to designate May as Asian Heritage Month. While Asian Heritage Month provides an opportunity to acknowledge the long and rich history of Asian Canadians, it also provides an opportunity for Canadians across the country to celebrate their contributions to the growth and prosperity of Canada. The work of the Asian Heritage Foundation (AHF) is two-fold: to foster awareness of the participation and contributions of Asian Canadians; and to raise awareness and address issues that impact Asian Canadians through advocacy, mainstreaming initiatives, policy, and education. Calgary continues to show that it’s a fast-growing, multicultural and highly diverse city. In such dynamic times, we need to ask ourselves, “Are we diverse enough in gender, race, age, and other backgrounds?” Learn more about the leaders who are being purposeful in their conversations to implement institutional diversity and systemic approaches into higher education, government, companies, and non-profits in order to develop, execute, and assess best practices that aim to embed and infuse equity, diversity, and inclusion into the fabric and culture of both the workplace and society. Date: Friday, May 4, 2018, 12:00 – 1:30pm Location: The Regency Palace (328 Centre St. S) Tickets are $30 each or $275 for a table of 10 and can be purchased at eventbrite.ca.
