RITU BHASIN WINS CITY OF TORONTO’S
WILLIAM P. HUBBARD AWARD FOR RACE RELATIONS
Toronto, Ontario – Ritu Bhasin, LL.B. MBA is the recipient of the City of Toronto’s 2014 William P. Hubbard Award for Race Relations, for her continuing efforts to improve race relations in the city of Toronto.
“This is the reason that I chose to commit my life’s work to advocating for the voices of difference, for those of us who experience oppression because of our cultural identities,” said Ritu, who is the Founder and Principal ofbhasin consulting inc. “I want my actions to contribute to the collective experience of breaking down barriers for all. But more importantly, I want everyone who feels different or ‘less than’ because of their race, to feel elevated, empowered, and beautiful in their skin.”
The City of Toronto will present the 2014 Access, Equity and Human Rights Awards in recognition of Human Rights Day on Wednesday, November 26th, 2014. These awards will be presented to seven recipients who have made a significant impact on the lives of Torontonians through their work to eliminate barriers to equality and discrimination.
The William P. Hubbard Award for Race Relations was established in 1989 and is named in honour of one of Toronto’s first African-Canadian Councillors, William P. Hubbard, who was first elected in 1894. The City gives this Award to a person whose outstanding achievement and commitment has fostered a positive race relations environment in Toronto and has encouraged others to become actively involved in the elimination of racism and prejudice. All recipients must be residents of the city of Toronto.
Ritu thanks the City of Toronto for their continued support of her work.
