Official Launch and OTF Recognition Event

Halton becoming more inclusive thanks to the work of the Halton Equity and Diversity Roundtable

The Halton Equity and Diversity Roundtable (HEDR), a new community collaborative of over 60 organizations, groups, businesses, and community members, is able to officially provide resources and training to create a more inclusive and equitable Halton community, thanks to a three-year, $225,000 grant from the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) made in Fall 2013.

      

The Halton Equity and Diversity Roundtable (HEDR) was formed in March 2013 as a result of multiple community consultations which highlighted the community’s demand for more resources, training and support on how to address the needs of the growing diverse populations in Halton.  Diversity includes but is not limited to race, socio-economic status, nationality, age, language, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, physical or mental abilities.
