The EDI Taskforce and the Centre for Human Rights, Equity & Inclusion would like to share the following webinar with the Humber Community:

Session description:

"Since the beginning of COVID-19, we have seen a rise in anti-Asian racism in Canada. Recent research from the University of Toronto shows that reports of anti-Asian discriminatory incidents have more than tripled over the last year.

During this Asian Heritage Month, join The Honourable Mary Ng, Minister of Small Business, Export Promotion and International Trade and Eileen Park, Founder and Filmmaker at Anecdotia Media as they reflect on their own experiences, share their perspectives, and discuss how all Canadians can come together to fight anti-Asian racism."

Speakers: Mike Luff, Canadian Labour Congress, Dan Piedra, McMaster University, and Dr. Nan L. Travers, SUNY Empire State College
Session Description: Join panellists as they respond to a variety of recognition and micro-credential questions such as:

  • Are post-secondary education (PSE) credentiallers able and willing to use micro-credentials (MC) as pathways into traditional diplomas and degrees?
  • How do MC originating outside of the academy differ from other kinds of assessment and recognition of workplace learning required of PSE evaluators?
  • Is a micro-credential better than no credential at all when looking for employment in particular sectors?
  • How can recognition of MC contribute to improving access and equity?
  • Is Canada’s competency assessment and recognition culture ready for MC? (for example among employers, occupational bodies) If no, why not? If so, where are the promising practices?
  • Discussions about lifelong and life-wide learning, along with RPL/PLAR implications, have been going on in Canada for over 30 years. What do you think will make a recognition of learning culture ‘stick’ today?
  • Should all micro-credentials include a digital badge? 
  • Who will become the navigators, advisors and advocates for adult learners and others who may need support in developing their ‘blockchain-anchored digital identity’?

Humber College’s HLR Spotlight, sister publication of the Humber Literary Review (HLR), will host a virtual launch for its second edition on Wednesday, May 19 from 7 to 8 p.m. here. This event is free and open to the public.

The online literary supplement is a joint effort between students from both the Faculty of Media & Creative Arts (FCMA) and the Faculty of Liberal Arts & Sciences and Innovative Learning (FLA). This edition features stories by students from the Creative Writing program, with editing and marketing handled by Professional Writing & Communications (PWC) students.

The cross-faculty collaborative project is funded by Humber’s department of Applied Research & Innovation (ARI), which has now supported the experiential learning project for the second year in a row. The project gives students hands on experience applying theoretical knowledge and practical skills in a professional literary environment.

HLR Spotlight’s second edition will be available at https://humberliteraryreview.com/hlr-spotlight-landing upon publication on May 19, 2021. 14 stories are featured in the edition, as well as artwork from local artist Meaha Caudle-Choi, who is a student in Humber’s Art Foundation program.

Creative Problem Solving: How do we approach challenges and find the best solutions?

Join us for this introduction to solving challenges and opportunities. This is where we have some fun understanding why we work so well with some people and not so well with others. From this workshop we will explore how the Basadur Simplexity Profile developed by Dr. Min Basadur sets the stage for optimizing how we solve challenges and opportunities both individually and collectively. This intro workshop is a pre-requisite for Simplexity Level 1 for Problem Solving.

Register here

This workshop is being held on Thursday, May 20, 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m.

This workshop has a 50 person limit.

Learning Outcomes Overview: 

Anyone looking for clarity on any opportunity or challenge (i.e. research questions for faculty looking to begin grant or sponsorship applications) will find Simplexity a valuable tool. It’s easy to get stuck and caught in words and ideas.  Invest the time and energy to follow the Simplexity process and the outcome will be a topographical roadmap to navigate key issues decided by you or the team. 

Required Survey Upon Registration:

When you register for the workshop you will receive a link to complete the profile survey. The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete. Don’t over-think the questions as there is no right answer – it’s simply exploring how we each like to approach solving an opportunity or challenge. The Basadur Simplexity Profile has been peer-reviewed five times with over 5000 participants and is used by organizations globally. 

Facilitator Bio:

Debra Pickfield, MBA (Leadership), BA Social Sciences (Economics) is a dedicated “Minion” as she has facilitated Simplexity sessions for over ten years and watched groups navigate from frustration to “ahhh – we get it” as they explore what is the real issue seeking to be solved. Debra’s commitment to recognizing problem solving as a key driver of innovation is what brings her to Humber College, and she is looking forward to sharing her passion and supporting anyone or any team as they learn a new skill to approach any opportunity or challenge facing them.

Advisor Training 2021 is fast approaching, taking place from May 25 to June 4. We have an entire two weeks of sessions lined up for us to learn, connect and refuel our work. This year, we have two amazing keynote sessions you don't want to miss!

Naming it. Reckoning with Our Truths.

The experiences of Black, Indigenous, and people of colour (BIPOC) professionals in the workforce are often challenging and nuanced, particularly for those with intersecting identities. Many companies and organizations express the importance of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI); however, the experiences of BIPOC communities tell a different story. In this interactive talk, we will name the realities faced by BIPOC communities and discuss ways that we can navigate the post-secondary environment, in a sustainable and healthy way.

Hosted by:

Natalie Elisha - Equity Projects Specialist, University of Toronto

Martina Douglas - Specialist, Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, World Vision Canada
