Dismantling Anti-Black Racism in Post-Secondary Environments Part 2

Inclusive community

For students, staff, faculty & librarians at the University of Toronto.

Organised by The Anti-Racism & Cultural Diversity Office in collaboration with the UTM Equity, Diversity & Inclusion Office.

In our first seminar, we unpacked the weighted history of racialization and its various problematic permutations within our modern society. In this seminar, through openly confronting our power, privilege, and biases, we will be invited to consider, work through, and simulate what it might mean to show up as an ally for equity-seeking individuals and groups in even more innovative, thought-provoking, and unique ways. 

Event objectives

  • Discuss and learn about the historical context of racism and its present-day impacts for Black community in Canada;
  • Understand and discuss the fluidity of anti-Black racism and its manifestations (within systems, institutions, and individual experiences);
  • Identify and unpack organizational and systemic barriers that can impact Black community from being included in post-secondary environments;
  • Share strategies and tools to break the cycle of anti-Black racism and create more inclusive working and learning environments.

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Joseph Smith, Educator, Community Worker and Researcher.
