Despite good intentions and significant investments, there continues to be evidence of imbalanced and unjust outcomes for people who are marginalized in Waterloo Region. Many organizations and services have made commitments to address these problems, but have not seen significant changes in their communities.
Wellbeing Waterloo Region is a community-led initiative that has committed to working differently across sectors to make transformative change in Waterloo Region. This interactive video series and Discussion Guide support Wellbeing Waterloo Region’s work to realize a deeper understanding of social inequities, and provide some common language we can use to work toward equity for the communities we belong to and serve.
“Challenging Systemic Barriers: The Equity Lens” is a video series divided into three parts. The videos should be viewed in order, as each part builds on the last. This material may be used in team meetings, communities of practice, staff forums, and more.
