We are now more than half way through the United Nations International Decade for People of African Descent (2015–2024). Proclaimed in 2014, the Decade recognizes that people of African descent represent a distinct group whose human rights must be promoted and protected.
This discussion will explore:
- a brief history of what led up to the Decade and its three pillars of recognition, justice and development
- what the three pillars could look like within the federal public service
- what we have learned from previous attempts at achieving recognition, justice and development
Following the panel discussion, there will be a live Q&A period.
