East and West Learning Connections (EAWLC) has developed and adopted a series of general policies to serve as an expression of its core values as a new, federally-regulated Not-for-Profit Corporation. Grounded in Canadian values of fairness, openness, and respect for human rights and equality, these general policies are meant to guide the behaviour of all those who gather under the umbrella of the EAWLC, to foster an environment of trust and mutual respect, and to celebrate diversity.
During the summer of 2021, the East and West Learning Connections will hold 5 online information sessions for members and volunteers to review our first five guidance policies. You can read the policies by clicking the links listed in the agenda below.
Our Vice President, Ian White, will lead the sessions. We cordially invite all our members, volunteers and guests to join this GROUP STUDY PROJECT!
The goal of these sessions is not only to learn about EAWLC’s principles and practices. IN THESE sessions, participants will be encouraged to raise questions and learn from each other’s experiences at work or in life, giving us the opportunity to share our understanding of Canadian values, social norms and workplace cultures! Our Board of Directors, members and volunteers are from All walks of life, and with different cultural backgrounds. So developing a common understanding of how we, as individuals, and collectively as an organization, should conduct ourselves in the Canadian context is vital to finding our place within that context.
The Sessions will start on Wednesday July 21 and run every Wednesday to August 18. All sessions will begin at 8 PM Eastern Time and run for about an hour and a half, depending on questions.
