Racism toward racialized people in Canada and around the world is engrained within the very building blocks of our society. Incidents of police brutality that have sparked anti-racist protests and mobilized people around the world are a grim reminder of the long-pending and urgent work required to dismantle systemic and structural racial inequities within our organizations and communities.
In this course, expand your understanding of anti-racist work. Deepen your understanding of the historic and current realities of racism in Canada, and learn from the perspectives and experiences of racialized professionals. Consider the commitment, courage and creativity required to dismantle racism within organizations both on micro and macro levels.
Develop anti-racist strategies that are indispensable to the efforts needed to build regenerative and healthy workplaces. Gain valuable tools to build awareness, create relevant strategies and engage in immediate and critical actions to make workplaces more anti-racist, respectful and equitable for all people.
