TSI – the spirit

Saturday July 11 – Thursday July 16 – 2020

The final Toronto Summer Institute – coming to you with a full cast of hosts:   McKnight, Lyle O’Brien, O’Brien, Mount, Kohler, Simmons, Hasbury, Scott, Wieringa, Kahn, Harges, Pearpoint and more… Now we need you. 

Accommodations at Ryerson – ILLC (International Living & Learning Centre) where much of the institute is being held – accommodation information will be available after Nov. 30. We will notify you when room registration goes online. Space will be limited.  Watch for updates…

This last gathering will follow the rhythm and spirit of those that have gone before. It will be an opportunity to gather, to explore what it means to Build a Bigger We Together, to make new connections, to stretch and to renew each other. 

We retire numbers & skates’ in hockey, but not the game. In that spirit, we are retiring the TSI ‘jersey’. Inclusion Press continues on.
We remain committed to advancing: •Inclusion•Community •Diversity•

Our support for people on their inclusion journeys remains unaltered. We will host conversations to discover new ways people can grow their spirits with local and regional initiatives, emerging from powerful allies who have journeyed with us over the decades.
