Diverse City Strategies

"Chris presented to more the 3,000 staff and students over three days promoting Dignity, Self-esteem and Human Rights. His stories, songs and message deepened our understanding of complex identities and equity. His passion connected with not only administrators and teachers, but with our students and support staff as well."  Rossella Bagnato, Superintendent of Schools, Sudbury District Catholic School Board. November 2015

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 teachers and parent/guardian groups as a free resource and encourage them to get students and children to do the actions while singing the song. A professionally recorded version is now available on iTunes and Googleplay.  Listen to a short clip on the "Songs" page.
