This is one of two afternoon session options for the 2024 Spring Education In-Person Event on Saturday, April 27, 2024. The other option in this time slot is Chairing skills. The morning options are Planning community engagement in your housing co-op and Tips and tools for managing conflict in your co-op.

Workshop leader: Mai Lui

Fee: Registration for the full-day workshop is $130 each for the first two participants. Any additional people who register from your co-op will receive a discounted rate of $65.

The fee covers a choice of two workshops (one morning session and one afternoon session), as well as pastries and coffee or tea in the morning, two breaks and a hot lunch.

We have very limited space for this event and we expect it to sell out. Register today!


This workshop will take an insightful look into issues of anti-oppression, diversity, equity, and inclusion. We will discuss how to make improvements in our co-ops, looking at practical examples. Here are some questions we will reflect on in the workshop:

  • What does DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) really mean?
  • What does your co-op look like, with a diversity lens, compared with the neighbourhood, city, or region where you are? What changes need to happen, if any?
  • What does your board look like, in general, compared with the wider neighborhood, city, or region where you are? What changes need to happen, if any?

No scents is good sense! CHFT has a no scents policy. Due to allergies, asthma and chemical sensitivities, we ask that no perfume, cologne, or scented products be worn to in-person events.
