2nd Annual Black Excellence Professionals Expo hosted on Wednesday November 8, 2023 at Notre Dame
The Black Excellence Success Team (B.E.S.T) of Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board was established in 2020 to help build capacity, promote relationships and foster community engagement amongst Black employees, students and the broader community. Our vision is to advance the well-being of Black students, foster community relationships and provide mentorship opportunities. The members of B.E.S.T consist of Black employees of Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board and the executive leaders are Principal Michelle Thompson, Vice-Principal, Lorian Feres and Vice-Principal Kwadwo Adusei.
The B.E.S.T committee is hosting the 2nd Annual Black Excellence Professionals Expo on November 8, 2023, at Notre Dame Catholic Secondary School in Brampton, Ontario. The Expo is an opportunity for Black youth to meet Black professionals and mentors in a career fair atmosphere with their families, vendors, and other professionals coming together to build capacity and community.

This event is open to youth in the Region of Peel, specifically Black youth, and Black community members. The Expo highlights Black businesses, Black professionals and Black leaders within the community that support Black Student Success.
Black representation matters and is key to addressing and eliminating Anti-Black Racism within the educational system. In response to Dufferin-Peel's Catholic Community, Culture and Caring survey data, and as part of the Multi-Year Strategic plan, the B.E.S.T committee is creating opportunities and affinity spaces for Black youth, staff, and the broader community to have a voice, feel affirmed and share lived experiences. This event is designed to build bridges with Black businesses, support post-secondary pathways and transitions in the workplace, trades and beyond.
