The Town Hall is an opportunity for Science leadership to listen to concerns from our Science community on racism and discrimination of all forms, from overt acts to those more unconscious in nature. The goal is for us to gain a better understanding of the problems facing Black, Indigenous and People of Colour. We hope to provide our Science Anti-Racism Taskforce with sufficient directions to formulate mitigation strategies so we may work together to become an inclusive academic society without racism.
For those of you that submit questions, comments or stories prior to the Town Hall via the registration form, please note that time restrictions may prevent us from sharing all feedback during the town hall. However, all submissions will be passed along to our Science Anti-Racism Taskforce.
- If you would prefer to share your comments, questions and feedback via our Anti-Racism anonymous webform.
- If you’re a student, faculty or staff member and you’ve experienced racism and need a space for support, understanding your resources, potential next steps and/or advocacy: connect with the Equity Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
- If you’re a student, faculty or staff member and you’ve experienced racism and would like to explore informal mediation, understand your rights, or file a grievance under a Policy 33: connect with Matt Erickson at email@example.com
- Additional Anti-Racism resources are available from the Human Rights, Equity and Inclusion office (HREI).
