Dillon Black speaks to the difference between equality, equity and liberation.
About the speaker
We imagine a world where we’re seen and heard, respected and valued, not for our appearance, gender and privilege, but for our work and character. A world where anyone, anywhere, has equal access to opportunities and resources to become the person they dream about.
This month we’re pleased to welcome Dillon Black to the CreativeMornings Ottawa stage to speak to the formula for equality and how it’s a work in progress, and this work is not done from the few with power but rather through the power of community.
