Important conversations about diversity and inclusion need to be coupled with effective action, and real change. Figuring out the best steps for this is not always easy, and today we shed some light on the intricacies of the topic, and hopefully offer some practical solutions to these challenging questions. Joining for a CCDI Fireside chat are Tyjondah Kerr and Mark Harrison, who are both doing amazing work on a number of different fronts for positive change within Canadian workspaces. Tyjondah has had a long career working in the gaming space, working at the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation, or OLG, for over 20 years. She holds a degree in psychology from the University of Windsor, and is a multiple award winner, recently being honoured by 100ABCWomen and receiving the Vaike Murusalu Empowerment Award! Mark Harrison is an experienced entrepreneur, having founded T1 Agency, MH3 Collective, the Black Talent Initiative, co-founded Park Street Education, as well as being elected Chair of the Board of Directors for Big Brothers and Big Sisters Toronto. In our chat with these two amazing guests, we hear some personal reflections and lessons they learned in their work, some larger ideas on progress, and thoughts on the areas that are most pressing at present. Both Tyjondah and Mark are generous and honest in their answers, talking about the challenges that we face, and the hope that we can have. For all this and more, join us today.
