About Harmony Movement
We empower and develop leaders for social change by providing diversity education and creating opportunities for deeper learning about equity and inclusion in schools and communities. We believe by building connections we can challenge discrimination and promote inclusion.
Through student conferences, educator workshops, community presentations, and resource creation, Harmony Movement builds connections across the country, providing learning opportunities to increase understanding of the complex and intersectional issues affecting our communities, as well as to change the way that people look at and understand inclusion.
Harmony Movement encourages all Canadians to value diversity and foster a commitment to a just and caring society.
We aim to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion in Canada by educating and empowering people to become leaders for social change.
