Register now for Intensive Human Rights Program for School Board Leaders

2023 4/6 | Connects Page, Education Partner News, Trustee PD

The Ministry of Education is partnering with York University’s Osgoode Hall Law School to provide a new two-part human rights professional development program. 

Registration is now open for these programs which are designed for trustees, student trustees, directors of education and board senior leadership. The 2023 program will consist of two half-day, live online sessions and is offered at a price of $245. 

In Winter/Spring 2021, Osgoode Professional Development (OPD) delivered a program focused on anti-Black racism and anti-Indigenous racism. The program received overwhelming positive feedback from school board leaders. This year’s sessions include: 

Disability Rights in Public Education
Sat., May 13, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. OR
Tues., May 23, 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.
This program will provide school board leaders and trustees with a foundational understanding of disability rights in publicly funded education. 

Hate Activity in School Boards
Dates TBD – will launch in Fall 2023
This session will provide a foundational understanding of manifestations of hate and discrimination relevant to Ontario’s publicly funded school boards. 

Upon completion of both sessions, participants will be eligible to receive a confirmation of attendance and participation.
