Tolerance is NOT Enough
11 August 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
We are excited to announce that on August 11th from 12-1pm, Baltej Dhillon will be presenting “Tolerance is NOT Enough”, a presentation on diversity and inclusion.
The presentation will be intertwined with personal lived experience and data that speaks to the value of having diverse teams. Baltej will also share thoughts and strategies on creating safe spaces for discussions on this topic and the value of diversity committees and diversity champions in an organization.
30 years ago retired Inspector Baltej S. Dhillon challenged an iconic Canadian Institution the RCMP on their policy of inclusion and the dress uniform. Through personal sacrifice and a legal challenge Baltej went onto serve as the first RCMP officer to serve with his articles of faith. He faced death threats as well as institutional challenges during his career. His lived experience now shapes conversations in organizational change as it relates to diversity and inclusion. Insp. Dhillon is the recipient of numerous community awards, 2 honorary doctorates and the Queens Diamond and Golden Jubilee awards.
