Feedback form is now closed.
Everyone has their own experiences and perspectives on racism and racial discrimination; we all have biases, and it is important to understand how these play out in our daily work and personal lives and how they may influence (albeit unconsciously) our interactions with others, especially students, co-workers and parents. This session will be a brief introduction to Alberta Civil Liberties Research Centre's "Understanding Anti-Racism and Racial Discriminations" workshop which is usually a minimum of 4 hours long and covers racism, the difference between racism and racial discrimination, the importance of discrimination and human rights law, terminology associated with racism and anti-racism, how unconscious biases and assumptions could affect your interactions with others, and some actions you can take.
We have presented this 4 hour workshop to many schools in Alberta and are currently working with the Anti-Racism Committee of a School District.
