CRHESI staff and directors have been active in the London Community Recovery Network (LCRN), linking our intiatives with the LCRN’s 3 main focus areas:
Investing in People
Driving Prosperity
Fostering Community

CRHESI’s impact on community and university collaborations ensures a focus on collective and participatory research, particularily for populations affected most during the pandemic.

Values in Action at Western University

CRHESI is proud to be part of the Western community. We strive to support values in action as we bring communities together to collaborate, research and address wicked problems.

“Wicked problems”are very difficult to solve due to their complex, contradictory, changing or cross-cutting nature (Weber & Khademian, 2008). Health inequities for example, are described as “wicked” because they appear intractable and unsolvable. We believe that moving knowledge to action is one way we act on our values.

How do you enact your values?

All Are Welcome Here virtual event March 21, 2022

All are Welcome Here/Tous sont les Bienvenus Içi, March 21, 2022

The London & Middlesex Local Immigration Partnership and its partners invite you to join us virtually on Monday, March 21 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm for our annual All Are Welcome Here event in recognition of the International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination.

Together we will listen, learn and participate in interactive activities to better understand discrimination in our community and what we can do as individuals, organizations, and a community to combat it. In an effort to mobilize the global goal of eliminating racial discrimination, we must all take action locally, where we are. This event will equip us all to more effectively and actively make contributions to a more welcoming community here in London & Middlesex. After all, what unites us is stronger than what divides us.
