A Virtual Celebration of Change Day BC 2017!

Join us for a virtual celebration across BC and beyond! Speakers will share their stories of creating change, engaging peers, and spreading improvement ideas. Tune in to hear from them, ask questions, join the discussion, and share YOUR Change Day BC stories and activities!

This virtual celebration is free and open to everyone. It will be “drop-in style,” so you can join for as long or as little time as you are able. (But we think it’ll all be worth sticking around for!)

Download our full agenda to see all the details for the day!
