Empathy: The Secret Sauce in Effective Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 1:00 pm
Empathy: The Secret Sauce in Effective Diversity, Equity and Inclusion @ Online
Feb 13 @ 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm
For many – and this is particularly true within the nonprofit sector – empathy is our first point of meaningful connection to diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) efforts. We think back to instances when our clients have faced barriers and biases, or times when people close to us have been excluded, or our own experiences of feeling that we didn’t belong, and these narratives became the fuel for driving the work forward. But what if we’re only scratching the surface? What if we reconsider empathy as an important skill for effective DEI design, development, and implementation? This webinar explores these questions and shows us how different ways of thinking about empathy can help sweeten the sauce, and bring about more impactful DEI. This webinar is hosted by CharityVillage.

Diversity, Aging and Living in LTC Homes 10:30 am
Diversity, Aging and Living in LTC Homes @ Online
Feb 19 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am
The purpose of this webinar is to share strategies to acknowledge and support diverse identities and needs of individuals who live and work in LTC homes. In order to deliver person-centered care, it is important for long-term care providers to thoughtfully consider the diversity of residents’ perspectives and experiences. Informed by histories of marginalization, being “different” continues to be challenging in modern day. Further, long-term care team members and leaders are faced with systemic pressures (i.e., high workloads, limited resources) while individuals’ needs for expressions of diversity in LTC homes are sometimes overlooked. With implications for how we provide care and services in long-term care, this webinar offers self-reflection tools to think critically in order to support individuals with diverse social identities. This webinar is hosted by the Ontario Centres for Learning, Research and Innovation in Long-Term Care.

The increase in the level of severity of student psychological difficulties and the growing need for mental health services in post-secondary education settings has placed pressure on college and universities services to respond effectively to this demand.

Though these systems are well developed in health settings, their use in post-secondary is still very novel. This webinar will discuss the processes, procedures, and considerations involved in developing and implementing a clinical triage system on campus. This webinar is hosted by the Centre for Innovation in Campus Mental Health.

Local Food Environment Policies: Identifying Opportunities to Support Healthy Food Choices 2:00 pm
Local Food Environment Policies: Identifying Opportunities to Support Healthy Food Choices @ Online
Feb 25 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Food environments are known to have a significant influence on food choices and diet quality, with important implications for the development of obesity and non-communicable disease. A range of government policies have been identified that are known to influence the availability, affordability and marketing of healthy (and less healthy) foods, and have the ability to shift the food environment towards one that is increasingly supportive of healthier dietary choices. Local governments are often the first to implement novel and innovative food environment policies, providing an important opportunity to test the feasibility and impact of such policies. Drawing upon international efforts to monitor and evaluate food environments globally, the Local Food-Environment Policy Index (Food-EPI) tool is a framework for evaluating local food environment policies, and can be used as a starting point for communities interested in evaluating gaps and opportunities to support the development of healthy, supportive food environments. This presentation will provide an overview of the importance of food environment policies in supporting and promoting healthy diets, drawing on examples that have been implemented across a variety of jurisdictions. The presentation will also share findings from the Local Food-EPI study conducted by researchers at the University of Toronto to examine food environments in three jurisdictions in Ontario. Lastly, the presentation will explore other international efforts to support the implementation of local healthy, sustainable food environment policies that are being used by communities in Canada and elsewhere to support effective policy change, and ultimately improve dietary habits and overall health.

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and design, and Mathematics) for Infants and Toddlers 6:00 pm
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and design, and Mathematics) for Infants and Toddlers @ ECCDC
Feb 25 @ 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Attitudes to science and math are shaped in the early years and carry though to the teenage years (Archer et al. 2019) and the attitudes of adults can directly influence children’s attitudes towards STEAM experiences. Educators are often uncomfortable and lack confidence in providing STEAM experiences, which can result in young children not being afforded opportunities to develop a love of STEAM areas. If you are one of those educators who is struggling with providing STEAM experiences in your practice or you are looking to enhance the everyday Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and design, and Mathematics experiences available in your early learning and child care centre, then this three-part STEAM series is for you! We invite you to join Ginette Wilson, Early Learning and Child Care Trainer, and Patricia Couroux, Coaching & Mentoring Services Coordinator with the Early Childhood Community Development Centre, and fellow Educators to engage in lively discussions and fun hands-on experiences that support STEAM in early learning and child care centres. Session 2: STEAM for Infants and Toddlers The second session will consider how educators can bring STEAM concepts into everyday experiences for infants and toddlers while honouring their self-initiated learning. Educators will have opportunities to consider how they can give visibility to STEAM learning and concepts in an early learning and child care setting, and reflect on how they can facilitate STEAM for infants and toddlers. This will then be followed by hands-on exploration of STEAM rich environments for infants and toddlers. Registration fee includes all...
