The awards will spotlight work that is based on shared goals and values, mutual respect, solidarity and our shared responsibility as global citizens..
Rhonda has been working with the multicultural community in Saskatchewan for 20 years in a variety of roles. She has been the Multicultural Council of Saskatchewan (MCoS) Executive Director for the past 9 years, bringing expertise and experience in multiculturalism, anti-racism, education, youth leadership, experiential education, cross-cultural education, non-profit management, and policy governance.
Rhonda has worked intensively using transformative drama with youth and adults to explore racism and discrimination and find opportunities for positive change.
Cheryl grew up in Guernsey, SK, and has been passionate about international and social justice issues since high school. Cheryl was one of the many Tools for Peace activists in the mid-80s who paired with farmers, church activists and health activists to conduct educational workshops around the province about Nicaragua.
Since 1996, Cheryl has been the researcher for CUPE Saskatchewan, and has been acting in an advisory role for their Global Justice Committee for most of the last 15 years. Her insightful analysis has made her an invaluable resource for Saskatchewan and Canadian trade unions and NGOs seeking to deepen their relationships and engagement with similar groups in the global south.
