Agents of Change: Forward Together – September 29, 2021

EIN AgentsofChange 2021 400

July 21, 2021

Agents of Change is an event for stakeholders from Canada’s electricity and beyond to build capacities in diversity, equity and inclusion.

Agents of Change is a one-day event focused on equipping attendees with the tools they need to address the challenges under-represented groups face in the workplace. Women, Indigenous people, racialized people, persons with disabilities, LGBQ+, gender diverse people and newcomers to Canada are under-represented in electricity and often face systemic barriers. We have the power to change this disparity and transform our sector into a paragon of equity.

Agents of Change is designed to encourage interaction and collaboration, with a setting for stakeholders at all levels to reflect on their experiences and draw inspiration for the journey ahead. Supported by employers across Canada, this one-day, virtual event consists of a robust line-up of excellent speakers, leaders from the electricity and renewable energy industry with lived experiences, and participants who are committed to sharing their experiences and strategies to create an inclusive workplace.

Keynote Speaker: Julia Middleton
