Policy and a Pint

February 07, 2013

Ruth Wynn Woodward Junior Chair Dr. Tiffany Muller Myrdahl will be hosting a public series titled "Policy and a Pint" encouraging members of the community to come and discuss urban issues.

Engaging Diverse Communities

February 7, 2013
7pm - 9PM
SFU Woodwards - World Arts Centre, Room 255
149 W. Hastings Street

Efforts to enact social change are always political, but how do structures affect these efforts? Funding streams and the City of Vancouver's Advisory Committees create opportunties for diverse communities to develop programming.  At the same time, they reproduce divisions within a diverse population.  Panellists will discuss the successes and challenges of enacting social change "from within" and point to strategies for engaging communities in ways that reflect their full diversity.

Panellists include:

Councillor Andrea Reimer, City of Vancouver

Lillian Howard, PhD student, Royal Roads University and Co-Chair, Urban Aboriginal Peoples' Advisory Committee

Steven Eastman, Co-Chair, Urban Aboriginal Peoples' Advisory Committee

Hawa Mire, Program Director, Leave Out Violence (LOVE) BC

Anthony Meza-Wilson, Co-Director, Purple Thistle

iris yongpearson, Community Developer, PeerNetBC
