Education and engagement
The Alberta Human Rights Commission has a number of programs and services to educate and engage with Albertans and Alberta organizations in human rights and diversity. Information and promotional resources, education programs and other services, such as workshops, displays and consultations with organizations, help to build awareness of human rights principles and law and support individuals and organizations to create discrimination-free, welcoming and inclusive communities, organizations and workplaces.
Through initiatives such as the Coalition of Municipalities Against Racism and Discrimination and the Welcoming and Inclusive Communities initiative, as well as awards programs like the Diversity Leadership Award of Distinction, the Commission engages with various sectors of society to help build organizational and community capacity to prevent and combat racism and other forms of discrimination.
The Commission is also responsible for the administration of the Human Rights Education and Multiculturalism Education Fund. The HREM Fund complements and supports the human rights and diversity work of community organizations and the Commission.
