Introduction to NexGen/ Empowerment and Racism Resiliency

Welcome to the first orientation for the NexGen Builders Mentoring Program using the online platform hosted by Aecon University!


We are excited to bring all the mentees together for engaging workshops with Urban Rez Solutions. These workshops have been designed to help you find and use new approaches to address unfair or racist practices at work, reflect on the experiences and pain points of Black Youth, Newcomers,Women,Indigenous, radicalized communities and gain stronger communication skills to better manage conflict.

This session starts with a discussion on empowerment and racism resilience, using effective strategies, such as the 7 C’s of Empowerment, to achieve success in the face of such challenges.
