KidzFirst Canada Partners With #MakeItAwkward

By | Events, Make It Awkward, News | No Comments

KidzFirst Canada is proud to be partnering with the #MakeItAwkward Team and the Make it Awkward Inclusivity Summit  This partnership came about due to the 20 + year friendship between KidzFirst Canada Founder & Board Chair Mark Mahl, and the Co-Founder and Executive Director of the the Make It Awkward movement, Jesse Lipscombe.

Almost 2 years ago Jesse was filming a public service announcement for the City of Edmonton when he was confronted with profane racial slurs. Jesse chose to reach out through the power of understanding, love and support to have our communities speak up, empower each other, and teach the importance of forgiveness and tolerance. Every day our young people are at-risk & vulnerable in their communities, schools, neighbourhoods, and peer surroundings.

The Make it Awkward Inclusivity Summit takes place February 1 – 3rd, 2018 in Edmonton, Alberta. The Summit will bring together global leaders championing inclusivity, diversity, and love. It will seek to empower participants to become ambassadors of change in their homes, workplaces, communities.
