Speakers Bureau


Speakers Bureau - Graduates cheering

The purpose of the Speakers’ Bureau is to empower individuals by giving voice to their lived experience with poverty and social exclusion.  The concept’s origins stem from the Shifting Attitudes work group of the Hamilton Roundtable for Poverty Reduction; founded to combat pervasive negative stereotypes and promote educated dialogue around the community implications and costs of poverty and social exclusion.  Participants will be available for speaking engagements to promote acceptance of community diversity and enhance awareness of local poverty issues through the telling of their personal stories.

If you have a meeting, event, organization that could benefit from hearing the perspective of someone from our Speakers Bureau, please contact Jen or Tom at 905-667-3595, for more information.
