The Anti-Racism Concentric Learning Series is an intensive cohort program for staff members committed to fostering an inclusive and anti-racist campus community. Participants will actively engage in a series of workshops aimed at deepening their understanding of systemic racism, promoting cultural competence, and enhancing interpersonal skills. Designed as a cohort setting, participants will benefit from shared experiences, collaboration, relationship building, and conversations beyond the surface level. This pilot series combines theory and practice and will build capacity and confidence in anti-racism work as well as its intersections. Participants can expect a curriculum that covers:
Race & racism history and concepts
Realities of racism: manifestations and persistence
Upholding Racial Hierarchies
The learning series will be given weekly for four weeks on Tuesdays (Nov 7 – Nov 28) from 10-2pm. There will be breaks in between including the hour-long lunch break. Those interested in registering need to attend the info sessions for the registration form to this series.
Registration does not guarantee a place in the workshop as there is limited capacity.
Session occurrence is dependent on registration numbers.
Participants who can commit to the full series will be prioritized.
In person or online delivery is dependent on the majority of responses.
This series is a collaboration between the Equity Office and the Black Perspectives Office.
All information gathered will remain confidential within the Equity Office for the purposes of improving our programming and content, including making this workshop available to students and faculty in the future. Thank you for your interest.
For any questions or concerns please contact Dona Nham.
*This series is a pilot program. Based on feedback received, we hope to adapt the series to the needs of faculty and students on campus with more permanent and consistent offerings.
