Remembering Samina Zubairi
It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of Samina Zubairi on September 8, 2022 HEDR’s  Coordinator since 2018. 

Over the past five years she has propelled the work of the Roundtable with many notable achievements including championing the Halton Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Charter as well as the Organizational Self-Assessment Tool. Samina was passionate about supporting the Halton community to advance our knowledge and understanding of equity and diversity issues through raising the voices of equity seeking groups. She was the conduit of community connections that allowed us all to deepen our understanding of issues residents experience in an effort, to impact positive change. Samina recently led the Social Inclusion Project through which many lessons were learned, and key recommendations were raised that will be critical as we continue our work around diversity, equity and inclusion.
