Strength in Diversity

CSSEA's 2017 AGM and Conference will be both a celebration of and study in diversity. Delegates will be treated to a poignant keynote address that will demonstrate how everyday actions centred on embracing differences can contribute to true social impact. Workshops will run the gamut, from traditional skills-based leadership sessions to thought-provoking discussions that aim to tackle gender stereotypes, racial bias and socio-economic differences. This year's conference will also enlighten attendees on Aboriginal reconciliation through a historical journey that confronts 145 years of tensions and triumphs that bring us to today. The three-day program will educate, offer new perspectives and challenge old paradigms to encourage stronger organizational relationships and ultimately, improved service delivery to the citizens of our province.

Awards of Excellence

CSSEA, in partnership with TELUS, is excited to present the 3rd annual BC Community Social Services Awards of Excellence luncheon. The luncheon is an inspiring afternoon that will honour four individuals working in various stages of their careers who have gone above and beyond in the social services sector.
