From January through June, St. Ignatius of Loyola Catholic Secondary School will be hosting a series of virtual speakers to spark the dialogue and increase understanding about equity and inclusion.

Keynote speakers will engage students in learning, unlearning and reflection, and will cover topics such as racism, systemic barriers and colonization. Students will also have the opportunity to join the conversation during the Q&A portion of each session.

Join us as we encourage conversation, allyship and action to help maintain safe, inclusive and accepting environments in our schools!

Watch the January 6th presentation here: Room for All: Faith, Sexuality & Gender Indentity.
