Building bridges in a polarizing world is the theme of an upcoming virtual panel discussion presented by the Halton District School Board (HDSB).

Led by Director of Education Curtis Ennis and Human Rights & Equity Advisor Pardeep Nagra of the HDSB.

The session will delve into how members of the community can lead with respect and understanding when it comes to conversations around diverse perspectives. It will include ways to explore how individuals can hold space for opposing ideas and develop mutual respect and understanding as society moves forward.

Joining the session as a panellist will be Dr. Steven Katz, Professor of Applied Psychology and Human Development at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education of the University of Toronto. Dr. Katz has extensive expertise in the areas of cognition and learning, evidence-informed decision-making for school improvements and leadership for system change.

“These sessions provide opportunities to engage in thought-provoking discussions on how we as a community can come together and work towards a collective goal,” said Ennis who has initiated several informative panel discussions for the community.

The session takes place on March 19 from 6 to 7 p.m. There is no cost and registration is not required. The event can be viewed by following this link .
