Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

The Halton Resource Connection's Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Statement

THRC sits on the traditional territory of the Haudenosaunee, Huron and Wendat, and more recently Treaty Lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.

THRC is committed to creating safe and brave spaces that support DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION.

As a leader and essential partner for professional excellence in the Halton Early Learning and Child Care community, THRC is committed to fostering diversity, equity and inclusion.

We understand that equitable and inclusive spaces provide a sense of belonging and well-being among children and youth. THRC strives to create programs and services that support and empower Early Learning and Child Care professionals to create these spaces.

THRC believes that all children are sacred, and we play a role in supporting educators to guide children and youth to embrace their authentic identities, and in standing in active and ongoing allyship with them.

THRC acknowledges the importance of continuing on our journey to learn more and to do more in support of marginalized individuals, and are committed to:

  • Listening , Learning and Action; To meet the needs of Early Learning and Child Care professionals, and the challenges faced by Black, Indigenous, People of Colour as well as other marginalized individuals in support of safe and brave spaces, programs and services to support their learning toward fostering diversity, equity and inclusion.

We understand that this journey is an active and intentional one, which requires ongoing commitment and effort. We understand that we may make mistakes along the way, and hold ourselves accountable to listen, to learn, and to act.

We honour feedback on our journey, and invite you to email us at connect@thr.ca for questions, comments or ways we can do better.

THRC is planning our 2024 Professional Learning calendar and we want to hear from you! Submit your feedback and let us know what Professional Learning you want to see in Halton.
