Racism & Exclusion in the Workplace: A Multi-Series Program

REALPAC, in partnership with BOMA Toronto, CoreNet Global Canadian Chapter, NAIOP Greater Toronto Chapter, Toronto CREW, and ULI Toronto, are pleased to present a multi-series program on Racism & Exclusion in the Workplace, sponsored by KingSett Capital. This series aims to help members of the commercial real estate industry understand, address, and dismantle systemic racism in the workplace.

Part One: Fireside Chat with Karlyn Percil-Mercieca

We are launching the series with Karlyn Percil-Mercieca (CEO of KDPM Consulting Group and the Founder of SisterTalk Group Leadership and Wellness Academy), in conversation with Farrah Khimji (Founder, Futura Funds and President, Toronto CREW). Jon Love (CEO, KingSett Capital) will provide opening remarks for the session.

Karlyn will discuss the L.E.A.P Framework, which she designed to deconstruct and address institutional and interpersonal racial barriers and increase equitable outcomes through accountable and inclusive allyship. More specifically, the L.E.A.P. Framework will help you:

  • Listen, learn and lead
  • Explore and examine your emotional data
  • Ask on your learnings and then ask
  • Prioritize equity by leveraging your 3 P’s (position, pay and power)

Let’s take a LEAP to eradicate racism in the workplace.
