    Lisa Robinson (Program Developer, Placement Support at Volunteer Toronto) will provide participants with a strong understanding of Diversity and Inclusivity Policies and how to build them for their non-profit organizations and volunteer programs.

    Lisa's approach includes understanding the policy as a living document that evolves with the organization, its needs, and its stakeholders (including volunteers).

    Participants will learn the key components of a Diversity and Inclusivity Policy and how to establish or update one for their organizations or programs. As well, they will learn how a great Diversity and Inclusivity Policy addresses barriers to volunteering.

As a previous non-profit volunteer manager and volunteer herself, she has experienced the benefits and challenges that accompany the volunteer experience.

    Join us to learn how to communicate more effectively and confidently at all levels of business, on any topic! This workshop will help you build confidence and improve workplace communications skills through:

    • Understanding the importance of the “circle of control” concept, which includes how to tap into your confidence and thrive in stressful situations.
    • Working through the “I AM” exercise to find your power (confidence). We will explore who “I AM” in regards to your organization, your position, and how you add value. We will also explore who “I AM” as a whole and the qualities and values you choose to focus and expand on.
