Have Tea with Me: Promoting a culture of inclusion

As part of the Memorandum of Understanding between the City of Saskatoon and the University of Saskatchewan, a joint working group came together to look at ways to address racism and contribute to building a community that promotes equity, diversity and inclusion. Together with members of the Afghan community, this initiative works to highlight the strength of refugee communities in Saskatoon and acknowledging the important role everyone can play in the growth and development of Saskatoon.

Video Series - Have Tea with Me

An inclusive community is one that not only embraces diversity, but that draws strength from its diversity. We hope this video contributes to people seeing diversity through this lens of strength and contribution. The video invites Saskatoon residents to reach out and get to know all our new neighbours. The video’s title “Have tea with me” was chosen because visiting over a cup of tea is a common and welcomed social practice in Afghan culture, as it is in many cultures around the world.
