On Saturday, March 2nd, the BICS Diversity Group is very pleased to welcome Alden Habacon to Bowen Island. Mr. Habacon is recognized as one of Canada’s leading diversity and inclusion strategists and facilitators. Mr. Habacon will generously be offering a 90 minute workshop from 7 PM to 8:30 PM which will be free to participants. If you are a Bowen Islander committed to examining your own beliefs and biases and helping the communities you belong to (work, school, volunteer organization, faith group, neighbourhood, etc.) become more inclusive, you may be interested in this workshop with Mr. Habacon which aims to develop participants’ understandings of inclusion literacy as well as skills to hold difficult conversations about diversity and inclusion respectfully and productively.
To register for the workshop, click here. Space is limited so please sign up as soon as you are able to do so. The workshop is open to all residents of Bowen Island and people who work on Bowen Island (or really keen mainlanders interested in visiting Bowen to learn more about inclusion!).
The workshop is being hosted by the BICS Diversity Group which was formed in September of 2016 with the intention of its participants learning more about diversity and inclusivity and contributing to making BICS a more inclusive school. The Group consists of BICS educators as well as parents/guardians. In addition to hosting Mr. Habacon’s visit, the Diversity Group is also organizing Multicultural Week at BICS in March.
