About the Courageous Conversation Speaker Series 

The challenges that face society are numerous and complex. In a time when misinformation and misunderstanding are proliferating, in a province where deep social divides have been exposed, we must work together to cultivate understanding and bridge the divide.
As Saskatchewanians, Canadians, and as global citizens, we need to act on the responsibilities that come with our citizenship. We need to learn about the issues that matter and initiate brave conversations that will have a positive impact in our schools, our workplaces, and our communities.

Since 2014, the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission has been hosting its Courageous Conversation Speaker Series. This series was designed to explore issues afflicting our society within a human rights context. Issues pertaining to:

• Racial Discrimination
• Indigenous Cultures and Awareness
• Gender
• Mental Health and Addictions
• Disability, and
• The Holocaust

These six topics were designated as cornerstones of the Courageous Conversation Speaker Series making them more visible and accessible for discussion and action. An understanding of these issues is foundational to the development of a full understanding of what it means to be a responsible, respectful, and participatory citizen committed to justice and equality in a pluralistic Canadian democracy.

If possible, when registering, please identify yourself as a CPHR Saskatchewan member.

To date, the Courageous Conversation Series has been hosted in Saskatoon at the office of the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission. The Commission is exploring also hosting these events in Regina in the future.
