This Anti-Racism Workshop Series is a two-part training program. The first session is theory based and designed to encourage reflection upon contemporary concepts and issues around race as well as racism history. We also pay particular attention to the manifestations and maintenance of racism in the workplace. The second part involves an applied approach, designed to promote, and implement anti-racism best practices through scenarios. The goal of this program is to foster awareness, understanding, and adoption of anti-racism best practices across the campus community with foundational knowledge and tools.
The objectives of Part I are to explore:
Race and racism concepts and history
How racism manifests in the workplace
How racism maintains itself
The objectives of Part II are to:
