The Ally Toolkit Conference
Saturday, May 6th, 2017
The Kahanoff Centre, 105 12 Ave SE, Calgary
9:00am – 4:00pm
Fairy Tales, with the support of RBC, is proud to announce our first ever Ally Toolkit Conference!
The Ally Toolkit Conference is a one-day conference offering a holistic toolkit for better ally-ship in schools, at work and in our communities.
In 2009, Fairy Tales launched our OUTReels diversity Education Program, sponsored by our project partner RBC. Through this program, we have delivered over 300 diversity education workshops for thousands of Albertans, using film as a vehicle for learning, discussion and empathy. As the Alberta Government implements new legislation protecting diversity in our schools, now more than ever, allies of the LGBT2QA+ are asking how can I help?
Many don’t know where to start. Many have questions they don’t know how to ask. Many need an invitation to join a community they might not otherwise know how to engage with.
The Ally Toolkit Conference will help begin this conversation.
Our project partners: RBC, Calgary Sexual Health Centre, Hilhurst United Church, VOICES Coalition and the Society for the Advocacy of Safer Spaces.
