Learning for a Sustainable Future, in collaboration with the Institute for Research and Innovation in Sustainability (IRIS) at York University, and the Education Alliance for a Sustainable Ontario, will be hosting a discussion with Sonia Dong, the Diversity Project Manager at the Sustainability Network. Dong has been working in the environmental non-profit industry for seven years building long-term capacity in the sector. On February 8th, she will be discussing the lessons learned from the Environment and Diversity project.
The Sustainability Network works with non-profit organizations providing programs, services, and support to increase institutional capacities. Their mission is ensuring that sustainability organizations survive by improving management, leadership and organizational development.
Dong will be speaking about the Environment and Diversity project, a four year collaborative initiative. The project is designed to increase the participation of under-represented communities through strategy formulation focusing on ethno-diversity and Aboriginal communities. The Sustainability Network lists three main tasks for this project. Firstly, they plan to train, support and inspire organizations planning to diversify. Secondly, they will integrate young professionals into organizations with the goal of incorporating under-represented communities in the organizations they join. Lastly, they hope to create links between organizations to increase resources and the strength of the sustainability community.
Come join us on Tuesday for a discussion and refreshments.
