A community is only healthy when all of its members are valued, heard, involved, and engaged.

HC Link’s 2017 conference will be a safe, open space for curiosity, self-reflection and conversation about how to work across difference to build more inclusive communities. Sessions will cover equity, diversity, cultural humility, inclusion and allyship, with a focus on youth, ethnoracial, Francophone, and Indigenous communities.

The event will feature inspiring and informative presentations, engaging small group activities, interactive workshops as well as opportunities for sharing and networking with colleagues from across Ontario. Portions of the event will be held in French to meet the specific needs of Francophone populations.
