On June 25, ANC held its annual Diversity Summit as a virtual event under the theme: Multiculturalism and Anti-Racism in Businesses and Communities in Newfoundland and Labrador This event was a pan-provincial forum designed to explore the contribution that diversity plays in supporting the sustainability of businesses and communities throughout the province. Drawing upon lived experiences, the Diversity Summit 2020 focused on advancing intercultural understanding by promoting the value and importance of multiculturalism, anti-racism, and inclusion.
For the past several years, the ANC’s Diversity & Public Education Division has hosted a Diversity Summit. This event remains an engaging and thought-provoking opportunity to build rich connections among businesses, immigrants, community groups, and citizens.
