EDI&B in action
Celebrating Emancipation Day
Aug. 1 is officially designated as Emancipation Day in Canada. The Pan-African flag was raised on all Georgian College campuses on July 27 to honour this date. Learn more about Emancipation Day activities. Georgian College Students’ Association (GCSA) celebrated the Toronto Caribbean Carnival’s 55th anniversary of the Grande Parade on July 30.
Celebrating Pride Month
June is Pride Month! We recognize and celebrate Pride here at Georgian. Pride is a chance for everyone to celebrate the rich history and contributions of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. Learn more about Pride (including the history of Pride in Canada and the colours of the new Pride flag) and see events and activities in our campus communities.
EDI&B education at Georgian

If you feel lost about where to begin, this course is a great place to start! Georgian employees can learn more about enrolling for free, and others can register via Continuing Education.
