THE TORONTO SUMMER INSTITUTE
INCLUSION, COMMUNITY AND DIVERSITY
July 12-17, 2014
FOR: Need Renewal? Need new connections?
This is for people who choose to invest themselves in creating and being the change they want to see in the world. People working actively on the complex issues of inclusion and diversity in families, communities, workplaces and schools will be attending. This Institute is for Thinkers and Doers - for people who know there are no easy answers and who are seeking new ways of thinking and acting. This is a never ending unique creative adventure in building a learning community together. The hosts see themselves as a jazz ensemble who have a definite theme and a flair for improvisation - harmonizing with the participants.
WHERE: Pitman Hall - Ryerson University - downtown Toronto
Ryerson University is in the heart of downtown Toronto, one of the most multicultural cities in the world - rich in diversity, social activism, and culture. We know you will enjoy the Institute, and all that Toronto offers: great food, great theatre, jazz, the Toronto Islands (great roller-blading and walking), an incredible array of affordable restaurants, the Blue Jays, the Raptors, the people. Eat your way through the city. Enjoy!

OUR AIM: is that we all celebrate our learning together and leave:
• renewed • refreshed • re-energized • to continue our work
