Online Event

Featuring: Njeri Damali Sojourner-Campbell


Ontario’s Human Rights Code (Code) was enacted in 1962 to prohibit discrimination and harassment in five social areas and based on 17 prohibited grounds. Employers in Ontario must comply with the Code, and within this requirement is the expectation that employers will adopt equitable practices to prevent, eradicate and respond to discrimination and harassment in the workplace.

Join Njeri Damali Sojourner-Campbell as she provides a high-level human rights framework for policy development and review during this comprehensive and interactive learning seminar. Participants are encouraged to bring a short company policy to the learning seminar for their own use in during the mini-exercises. Policies will not be discussed or shared.

This virtual seminar is part of the HRPA 2021 Fall Conference: Ready, Set, Go:

Overcoming Challenges and Moving Forward with Confidence and Resilience. The conference is designed to provide the latest insights and information to support your business and prepare for the future while collaborating with and learning from other HR professionals facing similar workplace challenges. For members of the Law Society of Ontario, this paid program will be eligible for CPD hours.
