Safer Spaces: Understanding Discrimination

Tue, 2013-10-01 09:30 - 12:00
McLennan Library Building : lower level, 3459 rue McTavish Montreal Quebec Canada , H3A 0C9

Designed specifically for the McGill context, this workshop will expose the participant to a number of concepts related to equity and discrimination. During this session, participants will examine ways that unconscious or unintended bias can work its way into everyday interactions; they will analyze culture and identity to understand how bias forms, and how it impacts relationships; and they will work through practical scenarios to develop language, responses, and strategies for addressing inequality and subtle bias in the office and classroom settings.
