Event Description

Join us for a forum about some of the different ways organizations in Peterborough, Ontario are integrating and uplifting lived experiences. The goals for this forum are:

  • To give examples of lived experience engagement and advisory work happening in Peterborough.
  • To help establish new connections and collaborations between initiatives, People With Lived and Living Experience (PWLLE), and service providers.
  • To provide opportunities to ask questions and engage across disciplines and sectors.

The purpose of this forum is to highlight some of the lived experience advisory work happening in our community. We will likely run a second forum later this year with a focus on organizations who hire PWLLE as employees.
