The Future Forums in Regina sparked conversations around access and inclusion. Drawing inspiration from a popular reggae song, the courage it takes to lead towards change for the better.

 

Words from the participants

"Leadership is often about fighting the status quo and sustaining yourself in such battles requires tremendous energy."

"Not everyone is always in a position where they can step up."

"It’s nice to have these uncomfortable moments. We are willing to accept failure as part of the process."

"Diversity presents challenges but it also presents opportunities."

"Denial and shame are an everyday experience when you are a disabled person. You perceive life differently. Inclusive communities need more listening and trust."

"We all have different ways of being and living and we want to move away from seeing the world in a narrow place, to be creative and listen to more voices and open the doors so that we can hear the voices of folks from different backgrounds."
