The IRYD Diversity in Business Workshop Series Project is an online financial literacy education program by the International Rwanda Youth for Development (IRYD) designed for Black youth in Canada to promote financial inclusion. To be held in Summer/Fall 2021, this program specifically counters financial exclusion caused by Anti-Black and Systemic Racism in Canada. Furthermore, we will also serve English-speaking Black youth in Quebec, who are by fact a double minority. Even though this initiative is Rwandan-Canadian led, it is open to all Black youth across Canada.
This project is made possible through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Canadian Race Relations Foundation (CRRF). More details will be available soon on how to sign-up for the program.
