Workshop Description
This foundational workshop is designed to give you an understanding of equity and how our interactions with one another are shaped by systems of oppression, power and privilege.

Learning Outcomes

  • articulate and understand the broader post-secondary and societal contexts for equity, diversity, and inclusion; 
  • identify and discuss individual, interpersonal, institutional, and systemic barriers for equity-seeking groups; 
  • identify and discuss strategies to reduce unconscious bias, incorporate inclusive practices into your daily work, and enhance capacity for allyship.

Participant Expectations

  • The workshop is provided in a lecture-style format, with some attendee participation at which point cameras are optional.
  • Participants will engage in small group discussions within break-out rooms. To ensure a safe space, these break-out rooms are optional.
  • Participants are welcome to practice self-care when needed. The workshop includes two scheduled breaks.
