The Halton Equity and Diversity Roundtable (HEDR) is a community-driven collaborative led by its own members.  Our members are responsible for the overall strategic direction and leadership of the Roundtable. We encourage the participation of all groups and individuals who represent all aspects of diversity including but not limited to race, culture, socio-economic status, ethnicity, nationality, age, language, sexual orientation, skin colour, gender, and physical or mental abilities.

The Roundtable strives to create an inclusive environment for all members and to provide accessible and inclusive resources, training, and events.

We encourage all individuals and organizations to join the Roundtable.  The diverse input, ideas and contributions of the entire Halton community are valued and are an important component for the success of the Roundtable.
