Increasing Diversity and Inclusivity in the Sustainability Movement

January 31 @ 8:00 am - 9:30 am

**Note: Due to a family emergency, we have decided to postpone the event until January 31st. Sorry for any inconvenience that has caused!

WREN’s Annual Breakfast Learning Session

The local environmental movement has made great strides, but we are still falling behind on bringing in a diversity of voices. By being more inclusive, we also find new perspectives and ideas. This year, we will chat about the importance of building inclusion into our actions and how we might do so. Sometimes even small changes can have huge impacts!

This breakfast will be the beginning of a larger conversation. We will feature a panel of experts including Kevin Sutton, A/J’s Elder in Residence, Christine Lefave, Hilary and Kamil.

 A light breakfast will be provided. If you can’t be there in person, join our webinar (email us at for a link).


Kevin Sutton is a community organizer, spoken word performer, and an equity and diversity facilitator. Kevin is the co-Founder of Threshold Artist Collaboration, Guelph, which works with youth, communities, and businesses using arts-based approaches to help them navigate and thrive within cultures of change.

Karonhya Katste ( Christine ) is a mixed blooded Mohawk whose family resides in Kahnawake and Akwesasne First Nations. Over the last 25 years she has shared experiential learning and teaching within indigenous knowledge systems across urban and rural settings while encompassing a diverse range of participants.
