      Maximizing Governance: Equity

      OCASI, in partnership with Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services, St. Stephen's Community House, Social Planning Toronto, and onBoard Canada, is pleased to offer Equity, the ninth in a series of ten workshops on governance. These workshops are for board members and executive directors of incorporated, community-based not-for-profit organizations based in the City of Toronto.  Attendance is by registration only. Spaces are limited, so register early! We ask that each organization send no more than two people to each workshop. Registration is first come, first served. Summary Do you want to learn how to develop and deliver services that are responsive to the needs of your clients and their communities? Do you want to learn about key frameworks to move equity-focused work forward in your organization? Does your organization need support in addressing a unique equity-related challenge? This workshop will cover the reasons why boards of directors need to be concerned with equity issues, and how you can address these issues in a variety of ways. The workshop has been developed especially for the Maximizing Governance project. Facilitators: Axelle Janczur and Miranda Saroli, Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services Axelle Janczur has been working in the not for profit sector in Toronto for over 30 years. With practice grounded in principles of access and equity, her interests include addressing systemic barriers to services, working  with vulnerable communities to achieve change.  She is an experienced trainer and public speaker, and a committed volunteer. With an MA in political science and an MBA from the Schulich School of Business, she has been working at Access Alliance Multicultural Heath and Community Services for  the past 20 years as Executive Director, and has led them through a transformative process,  prioritizing capacity building to enhance services for immigrants and refugees, developing a community based research agenda and advocating for improved access to the determinants of health for individuals and communities facing discrimination and marginalization.  Miranda Saroli is the Research Assistant with the Community-Based Research Department of Access Alliance Multicultural Health and Community Services in Toronto. She holds a Master’s degree from the Environmental Studies program at York University, and is passionate about working on the social determinants of health and improving the health and wellbeing of marginalized populations.
