The Halton Equity and Diversity Roundtable is grateful to acknowledge that we are on Treaty Lands and Territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation and the Traditional Territory of the Haudenosaunee and the Huron-Wendat.
We recognize that Halton is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Metis peoples of the past, present and future. We continue to reflect on the past and acknowledge that which came before us, while recognizing the importance of taking the path of Truth and Reconciliation.
We are committed to raising awareness for building systemic inclusion and equity in Halton, and we strive to learn and work together effectively to move us forward towards a community where individuals are valued, respected and empowered.
The Halton Equity and Diversity Roundtable (HEDR) is a community collective of organizations, institutions, groups, businesses, and individual community members that is committed to building systemic inclusion and equity in Halton.
The role of this Roundtable will be to move us forward as a community, to identify and celebrate our strengths as well as to facilitate the discussion in those areas that need work. Diversity is a real strength in our community, and we need to learn to work together effectively to make sure each member of the community is able to contribute the best of their talents and energy to make Halton a community where everyone wants to live, work, and play.
