The City of Grande Prairie is looking to lead a conversation on inclusivity. Its Community Social Development department is hosting three free sessions this week where residents can talk about what inclusion means to them, what barriers there are in the community, and what ideas they have to make the city more welcoming.
“This training and conversation is a really significant opportunity for Grande Prairie,” says Community Development Coordinator Tammy Wentzell. “We encourage all residents of all diverse backgrounds to join us, participate in the sessions and help us move forward to make our community vibrant and inclusive.”
The first session is Monday night from 6:30 to 9 p.m. at the KMSC Room B in the Coca Cola Centre. The second will be Tuesday from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at the Muskoseepi Park auditorium and then the third will be Wednesday from 1:30 to 4 p.m. in the Montrose Cultural Centre’s Rotary Community Room.
Anyone interested can register for one of the sessions can do so at cityofgp.com/events. They’re being facilitated by the Centre for Race and Culture Consulting. An online survey is also being conducted.
