Event Description


This workshop explores hands on approaches to building equity and meaningful inclusion at the interpersonal and institutional level. This workshop will foster critical thinking about anti oppression allyship and models of organizing and alternative ways of knowing and being will be explored, critiqued and applied. This workshop will employ multidimensional strategies to transform dynamics of power and privilege. This workshop is ideal for individuals/organizations looking to address inequities within their team dynamics, their work and at the systemic level.

What is "How to be an Ally"?

As more and more of us face the fact that the world is unfair and unjust for so many, we feel the pull to understand our role in supporting one another. Together, we can figure out how to create a society that works for everybody in our Canadian context here.

The kinds of questions we hope to ask include, but are not limited to: How do we learn from each other? How do I check my privilege? How can we engage in a conversation around identity, oppression, and colonialism? How do we work together?

For these sessions we have asked equity trainers to draw on their lived experiences and professional practice building bridges between communities to share their thoughts on how someone could be their ally.
