The HDSB hosted the Human Rights Symposium on Thursday, Dec. 9 and Friday, Dec. 10, 2021 to engage in vital conversations and challenge thinking. The theme of this year’s event was Identity & Human Rights to explore how intersecting identities impact one’s access to and enjoyment of Human Rights. This year’s Symposium was a virtual event for HDSB students and staff.
Thank you to the staff and students who joined the Human Rights Symposium and participated in Identity & Human Rights Week in the HDSB in the days leading up to the Symposium. Thousands of HDSB staff and students spent time listening and learning about identity, indigenous rights and human rights at this year’s virtual Symposium with keynote speakers Janice Makokis and Spencer West.
