Surrey Entrepreneur Showcase: The Entrepreneurial Journey
A person who organizes and operates a business or businesses takes on greater than normal financial risks.
Does that sound like you? Has the pandemic amplified the risk that you take on?
On June 18, the Surrey Board of Trade and Startup Surrey kick off the 2021 Surrey Entrepreneur Showcase Series.
Join us for insightful conversations with local entrepreneurs and experts from some of the industries most impacted by the pandemic. Hear their stories – what worked, what didn’t, and what they learned along the way. Whether you are a startup or an established entrepreneur, there is much to learn from them. Let’s learn together!
Anti-Racism Programming – Active Witnessing (Bystander) Webinars
Have you ever witnessed an incident of racism or hate but did not know what to do?
Have you thought about how you could respond if you ever witnessed such an incident?
Join this community webinar to learn the tools that will equip and empower you to shift from being a passive witness to an active witness. Learn about the bystander effect, the four levels of witnessing, and effective words and actions that you can put into practice.
We can all work together towards building a community of support against racism and hate.
This session will be facilitated by Angela Ma Brown, who is an education consultant specializing in the areas of anti-racism, anti-oppression, social justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.
Wednesday, June 23
5:30pm – 8:00pm
