Happening March 28, 2020!

The Freedom Achievers Program is presented in partnership with the Amherstburg Community Foundation.

The Freedom Achievers Program connects successful achievers with mentees at sessions where mentors can provide insight into career options and interact with mentees, in addition to a high-profile speaker. The speaker series called “Achieving Freedom in the 21st Century” welcomes diverse high-profile community builders to discuss the obstacles they faced and how they challenged issues such as racism, gender inequality and homophobia to create positive change.”

Our second speaker is Diversity and Inclusion Advocate Hadiya Roderique who will share career advice, but also how she overcame obstacles in order to achieve success. As a young, Black woman working as a lawyer on Bay Street, Hadiya Roderique delivered a wake-up call to corporate Canada in the form of her Globe and Mail feature essay, “Black on Bay Street.” In her thought-provoking talks, she discusses barriers and challenges to diversity and inclusion, and counters those common arguments to show the power behind a diverse and inclusive workplace.
