LENS provides a mechanism through which you can alter your worldview, that can change your perspective and allow you to not only see, but understand across difference. We provide clarity and education in order to mobilize and dedicate yourself to a life of self-reflection, action and growth.

OUR MISSION

To promote anti-racism, advocacy and social justice in everyday interactions.

LENS provides a safe space for having the tough conversations around diversity, equity and inclusion in a more informal setting, to ensure these concepts are not just viewed as a business imperative, but a human imperative.  

We all should know that diversity makes for a rich tapestry, and we must understand that all the threads of the tapestry are equal in value, no matter what their color

Inclusion is not bringing people into what already exists; it is making a new space, a better space for everyone

George Dei

LENS was created in response to a combination of the many difficult events in 2020. We saw how polarizing conversations around difference could be and knew that in order to move forward, we needed to move toward each other.

We do not seek to conform to the status quo, we seek to change it.
