Black Excellence Discussion Series #3 - The journey to achieving Black excellence

What does Black Excellence mean? How can we work together as a community so that African, Black, African-Caribbean (ABC) students can envision and feel empowered to reach their goals and achieve their full potential?

The OCDSB will be hosting a four-part discussion series focusing on the topic of Black Excellence. The discussions are intended for all parents, secondary students and staff.

These sessions will be livestreamed over YouTube and students, parents and staff are encouraged to share questions in advance to influence the discussion.

Session #3 - The journey to achieving Black excellence

Topic: Session #3 will be entirely organized, facilitated, and moderated by a Black student panel. The discussion focuses on intrinsic vs extrinsic motivations when achieving excellence, as well as diving deeper to discover the truth behind what it takes to consciously and unconsciously achieve excellence as Black youth.
