    The Get Real Movement Expands Programs to Promote Inclusivity and Acceptance in More Western Canadian Schools

    With support from Shaw Communications, Get REAL will bring Inclusivity and Anti-Racism workshops to more schools in B.C. and expand programming in ManitobaCALGARY, Alberta, Feb. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Get REAL Movement, in partnership with Shaw Communications Inc., today announced the expansion of its Inclusivity and Anti-Racism Workshops in British Columbia and Manitoba — bringing dynamic, mentorship-led programming to more Western Canadian students to help promote diversity, inclusion and acceptance among kids in grades six through eight. With a financial contribution from Shaw Communications, Get REAL will engage and educate over 15,000 students through workshops co-developed with teachers and mental health professionals to showcase the lived experiences of diverse individuals and ally role models, and support the development of pride and acceptance. “We are so excited to be able to bring our anti-racism and inclusivity workshops to more students in Western Canada,” said Chris Studer, Executive Director, The Get REAL Movement. “Our mission is to combat 2SLGBTQ+ discrimination, racism and bullying in schools, summer camps, and workplaces, and with Shaw’s support, we will have the ability to spread that positive work into a range of new communities.” The Get REAL Movement was founded in 2011 with the goal of creating a safe space for people to have non-judgmental, personal conversations about race, diversity and inclusion. Since then, Get REAL has developed equity-focused workshop modules for student and corporate audiences, offers leadership development through their university chapters and high school After-School programs. This is the first time the Inclusivity and new Anti-Racism workshops will be available to students in Manitoba. The partnership will see both workshops reach a total of 50 schools across Manitoba and B.C. “A brighter future must be nurtured carefully and thoughtfully, and Get REAL is working hard to help that happen,” said Chethan Lakshman, Vice President, External Affairs, Shaw Communications, which has supported Get REAL since 2020. “We’re excited to expand our support for Get REAL and the work they do to mentor young people and foster a new generation that values tolerance and supports greater acceptance and belonging.” Get REAL’s Inclusivity Workshops are delivered by Get REAL’s 2SLGBTQ+ and ally facilitators who share personal stories and experiences in a non-judgmental space to build compassion, dispel stereotypes, and show students the importance of kindness. Shaw will be the lead partner for Get REAL’s Manitoba After-School program, a free, year-long mentorship initiative for students in grades seven through twelve. The program is led by 2SLGBTQ+ peer mentors and is focused on increasing self-confidence, positive mental health, learned advocacy skills, and building a safe and supportive community for the students. Get REAL’s Anti-Racism workshop is its newest and features facilitators who share their experiences of navigating anti-Black racism in their lives and who provide important insights about historical-context, daily interactions in the workplace, and how to show up as an ally 365 days of the year. More information on The Get REAL Movement, its programs and workshops can be found at thegetrealmovement.com/workshops ABOUT GET REALThe Get REAL Movement is challenging the stereotypes and promoting acceptance with a movement led by experienced mentors. Beginning as a safe space on campus for students to share their stories, it has grown into a multi-faceted program offering workshops, educational kits, and after-school programs. Get REAL’s dynamic Black and 2SLGBTQ+ speakers have spoken to over 500,000 students in nine provinces and three states, promoting inclusivity and acceptance.

    Faster Speeds and More Bandwidth for Business: Western Canada’s Gig Leader Launches 1.5 Gig Internet Speeds for Business Customers

    Shaw Business’ new 1.5 Gig speed tier is ideal for businesses looking to keep multiple business-critical devices and applications connected and running as fast and efficiently as possibleCALGARY, Alberta, Feb. 25, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shaw Business today announced the launch of a new 1.5 gigabit-per-second (Gbps) speed tier designed to give businesses of all sizes the speeds and bandwidth to leverage the data-heavy applications and cloud services they need to manage and grow their operations. Beginning today, new and existing customers can leverage the power of Shaw’s Fibre+ Network to access download speeds up to 1.5 Gbps through one of two plans — SmartWiFi Gig 1.5, which pairs these speeds with Shaw Business’ enterprise-grade WiFi solution, or as a standalone plan with Business Internet Gig 1.5. The new 1.5 Gig speed tier is ideal for organizations that rely on multiple connected devices to perform day-to-day actions, from multiple employee laptops to high-bandwidth HD video calls. The download speeds offered by SmartWiFi Gig 1.5 and Business Internet Gig 1.5 are also perfect for companies who frequently store, share, and back-up company information using cloud computing services. “Over the past year, businesses have increased their demand for access to fast and reliable internet connections. Today, as many organizations start planning for a future that balances employees working from home with a return to physical offices, we know their need for faster speeds and more bandwidth will be greater than ever before,” said Katherine Emberly, President, Business, Shaw Communications. “As Western Canada’s leader in Gig speed internet, SmartWiFi Gig 1.5 and Business Internet Gig 1.5 gives customers the connectivity backbone they need to succeed. With download speeds up to 1.5 gigabit-per-second from Shaw Business, business owners can rest assured their network has the capacity to handle the demands of today, and well into the future.” Using Shaw’s existing Fibre+ Network, the new 1.5 Gig internet speed tier is a highly accessible and affordable solution which doesn’t require the hassle of digging up streets and drilling holes in the wall to get connected. Shaw is the Western Canadian leader in Gig-speed internet, with service available to more than one million more businesses and homes than TELUS. The introduction of 1.5 Gig speed for businesses comes on the heels of Shaw Communications making Fibre+ Gig 1.5 available to residential customers. Both speed increases are the result of significant investments to build, upgrade and expand its Fibre+ and Fast LTE networks and services — more than $32 billion over the past eight years. SmartWiFi can be bundled with SmartSecurity and SmartSurveillance — Shaw Business’ managed network security and surveillance solutions — which can all be easily maintained through one integrated dashboard. Customers can also bundle SmartWiFi with SmartTarget, an enterprise-grade customer relationship management system to help businesses understand customer behaviours and drive sales from a single automated platform.
