Equity and Inclusion Perspectives Program logo

The Centre for Global Citizenship Education and Inclusion (GCEI) is proud to offer the Equity and Inclusion Perspectives Program to all Centennial College employees. Through a series of interactive workshops, this introductory program provides employees with the knowledge, tools, and resources to integrate equitable practices that reduce systemic barriers and further build inclusion throughout the College. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will receive a Statement of Distinction.

To meet the requirements of the program, participants must register for and complete a minimum of eight sessions related to equity and inclusion from the following list of GCEI offerings below, including a mandatory reflective practice.

Note: The reflective practice session is designed to summarize participants’ experience with the program and is available to those who have completed at least six workshops.
