Speaker Series Collab: Principal’s Wellness Talks

Humber Wellness Talks Welcomes Indigenous Experts Anthony Johnson and Dr. James Makokis

Tags: Vol. 1, Issue 3, March 2021

In 2021, Humber Wellness Talks kicked off with Representation Matters: Becoming Better Allies as its first topic for the year. We welcomed Anthony Johnson, LGBTQ2, Two-Spirit and Diversity presenter and Dr. James Makokis, Canada’s Two-Spirit, Diversity, Indigenous Health and First Nation presenter. The talk was hosted by the Principal’s Office at Humber’s Lakeshore Campus, in partnership with the Human Resources and Organizational Effectiveness Team, Humber Indigenous Education & Engagement, and Humber LGBTQ department. 

Over 200 attendees explored the message of inclusivity, from Anthony’s journey to Harvard that was long, arduous and riddled with racism personally and institutionally to Dr. Makokis experiences in Canada’s healthcare system and how indigenous and LGBTQ+ persons have been viewed and treated. Read more about this wellness talk in the article featured in Humber Today.
