Testimonials

The Newcomer Interagency Network based out of Fort McMurray needed an organization to assist us with creating a workshop series that was tailored to meet the needs of our target group. The Centre for Race and Culture was consulted and they did an excellent job of working with us and creating a series that helped to address the unique needs of our community. The participants unanimously agreed that the materials were relevant and helpful and that the facilitators were extremely knowledgeable and friendly. CRC was great to work with; I would recommend them anytime.

A well organized, interactive workshop that was fun while sharing and learning. I recommend this workshop to anyone who is interested or whose goal is to promote an inclusive society free of racism.

I can say with confidence that the education the Centre for Race and Culture provides is incredibly valuable and effective for organizations, institutions and communities interested in building fair, equitable and inclusive practices and policies. CRC educators have a incredible ability to assist people in developing a solid equity and anti-racism lens to apply practical solutions to complex challenges within the workplace, institutional systems and communities. Most recently, the work that CRC has done with our leadership has been integral to developing champions to lead the organizational development for successful integration of equity and anti-racism into our policies, practices and processes.

We really appreciated the hands on and interactive approach that the facilitators brought to the workshop. They were excellent and kept the discussion and exercises lively throughout the day. Race and cultural diversity can be very sensitive and emotional subjects. The participants of the workshop found that these topics were discussed with the group in a caring and respectful manner and both facilitators were able to add humor in an appropriate manner which helped in putting the audience at ease. All participants were given tools to help us explore current and future situations that we find ourselves in and, in the end we were left with a better awareness and understanding of the many challenges that exist around race and cultural diversity. It was time well spent!
