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.
This year, the Asian Heritage Foundation is ramping up to celebrate all things diversity through engagement, events, community collaboration, and more. We proudly welcome our community members and partner organizations to our kick-off event luncheon, “Diversity Matters: systems changes to address Multiculturalism and Inclusion”. We are proud to be hosting a plethora of industry leaders to discuss what changes and impacts have been made in the name of diversity and inclusion. Let us celebrate our contributions with a discussion of positive change.
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.
