Best Start Resource Centre Annual Conference

Social justice has been identified as a founding pillar of public
health anda critical goal of social progress. This session, suitable
for all conference participants, will provide an overview of an
initiative spear-headed by the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) to
support its commitment to social justice. The initiative will be
described including the approach taken by CNA to advance the project,
to describe how organizations define and monitor social justice, the
process toward the development of ten guiding attributes and the
development of several resources, a decision-tree and social justice
gauge that assist in assessing policy and program documents. As part of
the workshop, participants will work with these two resources to enable
familiarization and practice with the concepts and tools.

Among the workshops offered this year will be "Social Justice: Putting
its attributes into practice for Health Promotion" with Dr. June Webber
of the Canadian Nurses Association.
