Safer Spaces: Issues in Race and Culture
This workshop provides participants already familiar with the
basic terminology and concepts of cultural and racial diversity
with a more in-depth engagement with these and other ideas. Through
the PCS model of analysis, which examines personal, cultural, and
structural levels of impact, participants will have the opportunity
to examine how race and culture affect daily life in the McGill
These three levels of impact are applied to the challenges of fostering diversity-receptive cultural attitudes, reducing structural barriers in University life, and building and maintaining safe and respectful spaces for interpersonal engagement. By working through examination of the power of words, stereotypes, and assumptions, the workshop also provides an empowered, individual-centred set of tools for addressing these challenges.
