About Shift Lab 1.0
Shift Lab 1.0 was based in amiskwaciwâskahikan on Treaty 6 territory, traditional meeting grounds for the Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Dene, Nakota Sioux, Iroquois, Métis, and Inuit.
Over 2 years (2015-2017) diverse community teams explored ways to reduce racism at systemic and everyday levels. What was unique in our city was utilizing a social innovation process to co-create, prototype and test anti-racism interventions.
In Shift Lab 1.0, core team community members decided to work on racism in the housing system. In 2021 the prototype Diversity Certified continues to be developed by Shift Lab 1.0 core team members and a non-profit.
