Branch - City Centre

City Centre Combined 136 & 137

Join Coquitlam Public Library in this speaker series with people from diverse backgrounds sharing their stories.

This series brings awareness of people who are from different cultural groups and how everyone's story is different. The speakers have experienced prejudice, social exclusion or stigma. The best way for Canadians to build a better future for all is to understand and appreciate everyone’s experiences.

In this last session of this series we are partnering with Indy Batth (she/her/hers) of ikb Coaching & Consulting to learn more about authentic allyship. Anyone coping with the burden of racism needs allies. But what does it really mean to be an authentic ally? This is an important question for everyone to consider, especially those in leadership roles. Embodying equity informed skills will change how you show up and impact those around you - individuals, groups, teams, organizations and beyond. In this workshop, we focus on the inner work required to build equity informed allyship.

Registration is recommended for each session, but drop-ins are welcome. 

Light refreshments will be served.

If you have any questions, please contact Ann at ajohannes@coqlibrary.ca or Aman at asaroya@coqlibrary.ca 

Other events in this speaker series include:

  • October 11 - Indigenous Culture 
  • October 18 - Immigrants 
  • October 25 - Antisemitism
  • November 1 - Islamophobia 

Thank you to the Province of British Columbia for providing us the funding for this series. This program is supported by the BC Multiculturalism grants.
