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.
