Exploring Equity Video Series Continues

The final six videos in The United Church’s Exploring Equity series are now available on YouTube. This video series was created in partnership with members of the Equity Support Team for General Council 44 and the Anti-Racism and Equity Lead staff. The role of the Equity Support Team is to work to help the Council live into the church’s commitments to equity and self-determination as well as the equity aspirations.

The church’s commitments to equity and self-determination are deeply grounded in the church’s aspirations to become an intercultural and anti-racist church and to support the full participation of peoples of all identities in church life.

The new videos posted explore:

  • Being Open to Neurodivergence: What are some challenges that neurodivergent people might experience in church and community, and how are certain social expectations not always open to neurodivergent lives?

  • Creating Space for One Another: How might we think about how much we might be speaking in meetings, and how might we create space for one another?

  • Wisdom from Diverse Voices: How can we better value all voices, and how might a speakers list help enable us to do this?

  • Valuing All Voices: What does equity mean, and why is it important? What are the five equity aspirations, and why is it important to value all voices?

You can explore these and previous videos in the series on the United Church YouTube channel.
