In this workshop, we will be unpacking the impact of structural racism in Canadian society. Alongside experts and members of Indigenous and immigrant populations, we will share strategies for sensitizing the public and building dialogic spaces to counter different forms of structural racism. We will also discuss recommendations to tackle these structural forms of racism for policy makers in education, mental health, social service, public safety and other fields, based on practical experiences by members of our team.
