Diverse City Strategies

Chris D'souza has taught at the elementary and secondary levels and was the Equity and Diversity Officer for 5 years for the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board. From August 2008 to August 2011 he was a Course Director in the Faculty of Education at York University and is now teaching part time at St. Roch Secondary School with DPCDSB. 

He has conducted over 5000 Equity and Anti-Oppression workshops to Educators, Law Enforcement, Community Services, Corrections Officers and Corporate Institutions. He is the founder of the Equity Summit Group, a collaborative of over 26 school board equity representatives in Ontario. Chris was also part of the writing team that created the Ministry of Education of Ontario's Equity and Inclusive Education Strategy which won the Policy award from the Canadian Race Relations Foundation. http://cal2.edu.gov.on.ca/april2009/EquityEducationStrategy.pdf.

In November 2009 he was awarded a National Award for his leadership in Education by the Harmony Movement, an acclaimed national organization which promotes the eradication of discrimination. In January 2011 he was featured on the cover of Education Today.

He is the author of three books. "Why Are All The Taxi Driver's...?", which unpacks commonly held stereotypes, is being used in over 6000 schools and in over 7 countries. His most recent book is an allegorical narrative critiquing colonialism and its impact on indigenous people globally, in the form of a children’s storybook entitled “Kicking the Elephant’s Ankle”.

My first children's song

It is with a great deal of excitement that I present my first children's song entitled, "I want you to be nice to me".  It is an anti-bullying song with actions for students/children. Please, send the link out to elementary teachers as a free resource (having said that- my grade 12's love the song) and encourage them to get students to do the actions while singing the song. A professionally recorded version will be available in July. 

They can type the title of the song into the search engine and it will appear. Thanks for the support

Feedback is appreciated.
