GIVE THE GIFT OF BELONGING
What would a community without racism look like?
“…a community where we all feel safe and all our stories matter. A city where all its people have equal access to the available resources, where better is possible, and where we can all dream in colour.” Black person, identifies as female, immigrated to Canada
UWSVI believes that diversity, equity and inclusion are at the heart of a healthy and vibrant community. Our vision is that people of all backgrounds, races, abilities, and orientations can share their voices freely and build a greater community for all.
We are proud to work with the Inter-Cultural Association of Greater Victoria (ICA), an organization United Way has funded for decades, to bring a positive solution forward.
Tools for Equity is a new diversity, equity and inclusion training program designed to support local businesses and organizations to address issues of systemic racism. The program will address racial disparities and employment barriers faced by immigrants and communities of colour.
Everyone should feel welcome and safe in our community, no matter who we are or where we come from. Help create a welcoming, inclusive and equitable community for all.
